Phoenix White Leaf / / Bai Ye / / 2018 Spring Dancong

Dancong Dark Roasted Oolong Tea


From Fenghuang Mountain, Wu Dong Village, Chaozhou, Guangdong Province, China.

This tea is organically grown!

Dark brown, tight and lightly twisted leaves give sweet and smokey aromas, once brewed floral aromas are revealed on the wet leaves. The tea soup is a bright golden/yellow colour. Soft and smooth to taste with a mellow long lasting floral sweetness and a thick mouthfeel giving a honey like aftertaste. Akin to a Honey Orchid / / Mi Lan Xiang.

Harvested in Spring 2018, at approximately 1000m elevation, picking 2-3 half matured leaves from the wild variety tea bushes of Phoenix Mountain more than 80 years old and using the most traditional processes by Tea Master Song Lin & family.

'Dancong' meaning Single Bush, traceable back to a single bush/tree or group of bushes/trees.
