About Phoenix Oolong

Mount Phoenix, a steep mountain located close to the southern coastal line of China. It is not only home to the high fragrance single bush oolong (dancong), but also the birthplace of "gongfucha", a traditional brewing method using one gaiwan and three teacups (regardless the number of guests!). There are more than 70 varietals of dan cong, which then group into 12 categories according to their fragrance. After visiting the area, we decided to use honey orchid oolong, to represent this area.

Light copper colour liquor with a shine. High flower note on the nose, interesting and quickly fading astringence, leaving a ripe pear taste on the cheeks and at the back of the throat. We recommend a comparable tasting with our Honey Orchid, which come from the same region but a heavier oxidation.
