An interesting cup of 2007 Winter Feng Huang Wu Dong old bush Dan Cong Hauang Jing.
I have no idea what any of that means besides the 2007 winter and the Dan Cong. but that isn't stopping me from enjoying it.
is the mountain range that Dan Cong comes from. Wu Dong
is one mountain in the range. Hauang Jing
is probably the proper name of the Dan Cong which could be anything, unless it's actually Huang
, which means yellow. Some of them are named as strangely as "Thief Shit," but most are named for flowers. Most of this stuff can be cribbed from Lew Perrin's great resource, BabelCarp, at http://www.panix.com/~perin/babelcarp.c ... g+Wu+Dong+
I really hate having to deal with all these Chinese words just because I like tea. Even if I can remember a string of them, I know I'll never come close to being able to pronouce them. I may have to switch my drinks to Appellations Contrôlées, Rioja, DOCG (Denominazione Controllata), or VSOP (Very Special Old Pale). At least I have a fighting chance in the European languages.
