Sigh, I’m a sucker. I walked by a teashop, couldn’t resist, walked in, asked if they have dancong. They do, at exorbitant prices. I bought 50g anyway, just to try it out….. sigh.

The most expensive is 1000 USD for 500g. Yes, you read that right. 1000 USD for 500g.

I didn’t get that. I got something that’s only a fraction of that, but even a fraction of 1000 is a lot.

Let’s see if this stuff is any good tomorrow. Then on Wednesday, I’m back to Maliandao to find more dancong.

    I wonder what’s so special about that thousand-bucks Dan Cong?  The Song Cong DC that I’ve encountered in person didn’t cost THAT much.

    It’s a Songzong, actually, this one I bought is also a Songzong. I honestly do not think any tea is worth that much, unless it’s a cake of seriously good, old puerh. Any new tea, I should say, is not worth that much.
