Phoenix of Guangdong | Feng Huang Dan Cong

430 Kč

Dan Cong is a very old tea which dates back to a period 900 years ago, and its leaves originate from the Shui Xian tea plant, which grows upright from a single trunk, with branches opening outwards like umbrellas. The slightly crinkled, long brown leaves are very aromatic and produce a sweet infusion with a peach flavour, reminiscent of the popular Chinese longan fruit (with a taste similar to lychee).

In Chinese Feng Huang means Phoenix, sometimes called Red bird of the West, one of four mystical beasts of Si-Ling. These myths surrounding Oolong originate from the mountain range of the same name in the Chinese province of Guangdong. Dan Cong is a very old tea which dates back to a period 900 years ago, and its leaves originate from the Shui Xian tea plant, which grows upright from a single trunk, with branches opening outwards like umbrellas. Feng Huang Oolong is divided into three quality categories. Feng Huang Shui Xian is the most common of these, one quality class higher is Feng Huang Lang Cai and the highest class of this tea is Feng Huang Dan Cong, which always originates from one specially selected plant and which must be harvested only in autumn between one and four in the afternoon and exclusively on cooler, sunny days, in order to preserve its legendary aroma (ten scents of Feng Huang). During the reign of the Song dynasty this was the emperor’s tea. The slightly crinkled, long brown leaves are very aromatic and produce a sweet infusion with a peach flavour, reminiscent of the popular Chinese longan fruit (with a taste similar to lychee).
