Crème Royale or “Song Zhong” is a tea that dates back as early as the Song Dynasty. These leaves come from the original trees grown on the Phoenix Mountains, making it the Dancong exclusively offered to royalty.

The tea feels luxurious and almost creamy in the mouth, and its rich range of flavor profiles make this tea a pure delight. Its flavors and aromas are nuanced from fragrant floral notes, to deep nutty notes, and a burst of sweet fruits.
