Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea or rather known as Huangzhi Xiang Dancong is crafted from the leaves of the Dancong bushes growing on Phoenix Mountain of Guangdong Province. Typical of Dancong teas, it is described as having contradictory body and aftertaste. Dancong names ussually represent a flower because of the floral smell it has. Dancong Oolong Tea was a tribute tea during the Song Dynasty.

I found this far lighter than expected especially this the aromas was so pungent and rich in floral tones. The first steep was heavier in floral tones but the body is light. The second steep was clearly a lot more complex with a number of unique flavor profiles combining to make the cup. Also, the floral aspect was dramatically less than the first steep. However, the overall cup was more full in body. A very interesting cup indeed. I enjoyed this so much based on the fact that it can change so much from one steep to the next. Very exciting when even a cup of tea can hold your interest.

Added Notes (Hubby): The aroma of fields in spring. First steep was very weak. Second steep was a lot more complex in flavor but still a little weak for his palate.
