    Appearance/Taste: big dark twisted leaf, this  is a special one in that it is the only dan cong harvested in the winter, hence its fun name "snowflake tea." It is also rare, in that only a small amount is produced each year. While dan cong are teas generally characterized as robust, Da Wu Ye's oxidation level is on the light side, resulting in a delicate sweet floral aroma that lingers on the tongue, bringing on a soft smile.
