Phoenix Dancong Oolong is a single bush tea native to Phoenix Mountain in Chaozhou, Guangdong Province. Our Dancong is harvested at an elevation of 400m 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 Magnolia Phoenix Dancong was harvested this Spring from trees approximately 60 yrs in age. The tea has been very lightly oxidized and dried, allowing for the tea leaves to retain both their lovely green color and intense floral aromas. The initial sensation you intake is a big fruit fragrance, followed by the perfume of magnolias. The tea liquor is sweet and creamy. If you enjoy light roast Tie Kwan Yin oolong, you will likely also enjoy this magnificent oolong.
The fresh fragrance of this tea is incredible and is a must try for lovers of dancong. Of all of our Phoenix Dancong oolongs, both Magnolia and Duck Shit have been the most popular.
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!
