Phoenix Dancong Oolong is a single bush tea native to Phoenix Mountain in Chaozhou, Guangdong Province. Our Dancong is harvested at an elevation of 500m by hand on Wudong Mountain, known to produce the best dancongs due to its abundant red clay soil with its mineral content, and the presence of older tea trees.
The Eight Fairies Phoenix Dancong was harvested this Spring from trees approximately 40 yrs in age. The tea has been 50% oxidized and lightly roasted, so it is a greener oolong. This oolong differs in its sweeter floral fragrance with some vanilla notes. The tea liquor is sweet and creamy. If you enjoy light roast Tie Kwan Yin oolong or our Phoenix Dancong Magnolia, you will likely also enjoy this oolong.
This tea was hand-harvested & hand-weeded. No pesticides or fertilizers were used.
These teas are produced in very small quantities, and we were fortunate to secure some for our customers!
