From Dragon Tea House

This is a high quality handmade oolong from China. Also known as Phoenix bird oolong. Dan Cong is often translated as “Single Strain,” named after tea bushes hundreds of years ago in which each bush produced a uniquely flavored tea. Fenghuang Dancong is a select oolong tea from Guangdong province and was a tribute tea in the Song Dynasty. The leaves are harvested from a strain of trees that have been selected for careful breeding as straight trunk trees. These trees have a single trunk that rises straight up and the branches form an umbrella, making harvesting the leaves particularly difficult. Pickers use tall ladders or must climb the trees to harvest the long leaves.

This strain is light and slightly astringent, with a hint of tropical fruit. This tea absolute delight, from the lovely black leaves, to the complex aroma of the infusion which is a lovely golden yellow liquor, with a complex delicate woody, fruity taste. According to its different flavours, Dan Cong teas have been divided into many types, such as Zhi Orchid, Osmanthus, Yulan, Almond, Cinnamon, Ginger Flower, Jasmine, Honey Orchid, Huangzhi, Grapefruit, etc.. Colony, Egiht Immortals, Oriental Red, Song, City-wall are considered as high grade products.

The aromatic, hearty oolong has a clear orange-brown hue in the cup. The leaves reveal their oolong characteristics during infusion and turn definitively green in the center and red-brown on the edges. The second infusion is considered by many to be the best, with a desirerable, lingering aftertaste.

There is about 20,000-acre-tea-base to produce Phoenix Dancong Tea. Our organic Dan Cong tea is in accordance with the standard of national organic tea, approved by Nuisanceless Food Professional Technical Committee of Guangxi Quality Association. Contains no pesticides. As for processing, preservation, transportation and sales, we carry them out in accordance with production technical regulations of organic tea. The quality of the tea is qualified with the standard and requirements of the regulation “Organic Tea” approved by Quality Inspection Bureau. Medium caffeine content.

Differnt from traditional Baxian, the spring Baxian adopts tender leaves harvest in March and processed with innovative procedures which make it tastes delicate.
Brewing Guide: Brew it in a gaiwan or in a Yixing teapot. Preheat vessel and cups with near boiling water (85-95°C or 185-200°F). Fill 1/3 to 1/2 of the volume with tea and add water and push off the bubbles with the lid as you cover and pour out this wash. Add more water, cover and infuse for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on taste. Pour tea into preheated cups and serve. Infusion can be repeated four or more times, increasing the infusion time as necessary.

So… I’ve been pretty MIA for awhile..

Honestly didn’t drink much tea all summer, been having stomach problems and was advised by the docs to stay off tea/caffeine and the whole bunch. Though, I’ll also blame laziness and lack of appeal of hot tea in summer too for not touching it at all! Still having stomach problems, but the weather is getting cold again sooo that means i’ll drink it anyways :)

I actually bought this tea back in spring, didn’t really touch it till now. I’ve read and heard about the raves of Dan Cong oolong tea so I bought this one from DTH, figuring it can’t hurt to give it a try. The tea comes in the regular one and this “Spring” edition promising younger leaves. Apparently this one is supposed to taste like peach, but I can’t taste any of that. It’s just a tad bit bitter and tastes more like an out of place green tea of some sorts. Overall no real complaints, drinkable.. tea..
