Phoenix Dancong is a special style of oolong tea produced in Fenghuang “Phoenix” Mountain, a coastal region celebrated for its mineral-rich soils, foggy climate and rocky landscape. The region is famous for the highly expressive and unique tea developed from careful cultivation over many generations.
These teas are named after a xiang or “fragrant” strain of oolong due to their highly aromatic qualities. Descriptions of these teas illustrate how they mimic the aromas of various fragrant flowers and fruits, like tuberose, honey, orchids, or almond flowers while others' names are derived from stories from the farmers.
This particular 'mid-mountain' oolong has a beautiful, sweet, orange blossom fragrance that is delightful. This 2023 Spring harvest displays a brilliant floral aroma and a balanced sweetness from it's light roasting.
