What was your opinion on this tea? I was just about to contact Hojo about getting some.

I've really enjoyed Wuyi Origin's dancongs. Last night I tried the Fan Shu Xiang, sweet potato fragrance. It was quite a bit more roasted and savory than other dancongs I've tried. There was definitely a sweet yammy quality to it, which I'm sure is where the name came from :)

Interesting, I am drinking that one right now. This tea is dan cong leaf but, according to what Cindy told me, was finished using Wuyi techniques.
