Nine Bend Black Dragon (Panyong Golden Needle)
Pure Black Tea
This Congue style tea is an example of what a premium Chinese tea should be. Using a complicated production procedure results in one gorgeous leaf, and only 50 tons of this tea are produced annually! Exceptionally fresh with a slightly sweet infusion with a thick sultry nose and bright golden cup. This is one Dragon that will never let you down!
The 'Nine' in the name refers to a proprietary nine part production process for this unique tea. Also called Panyong Needle, it is only produced in the district on Panyong in Fuan city. Production is about 50 tons per year. Hand sorted, with very distinctive wiry needle like leaves.

I received this tea as a gift along with a variety of other delicious teas from The Whistling Kettle, but this one is my absolute favorite! Nice, rich, black tea with hint of burgundy flavor...truly brewed a perfect cup of tea! I ordered more, immediately. :)
We were pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this tea. It was our first to arrive for the of the month club & we loved it.
I like black tea, but i am picky about my black tea. I want it to be strong, but not too much - i want it to be smooth, but not too smooth (its needs some bite). You get the idea.
This one is one of my favorites! The cup is well rounded, and just the right mix of smooth and bite. Great tea!
