Very long, individual leaves. After a short brew with almost boiling water it gives of an amber/green liquid with a very floral scent. The tea itself came out slightly bitter, but not at all unpleasant if you’re used to chinese teas where some bitterness is a desireable trait.
After varying brew times and temperatures it comes out consistently tasty. Bitterness can be controlled this way so you can reduce it if you’re not a fan.
Phoenix Dan Cong (Snow Flakes) Oolong
For those not familiar with Phoenix Dan Cong, it comes from the Guangdong Province, which lies in the Phoenix Mountains in Southern China. There, the leaves of the Dan Cong bushes are crafted into Dan Cong Oolong, also known as Huangzhi Xiang Dan Cong.
The tea bushes of the Phoenix Mountains are regarded as some of the finest in the world and are prized for their full body and flavor. When brewed, the liquor presents an exquisite flavor and fragrant aroma to that of peaches.
