From JK Tea Shop

This premium Mi Lan Xiang Dancong is from the Gonghou village(around the Fengxi reservior, around 400 meters above sea level) in Wudong mountain.

Well-selected the tea trees over 30-40 years old, made by the skillful tea people in Wudong mountain, our Dancong is Highly-roasted baked by traditional charcoal way; it enjoys strong, delicate honey aroma with light floral aroma as well; sweet taste with lingering after taste sweetness; rich & complex mouth feeling after sipping the tea liquid.

All of our Honey orchid & yellow sprig Dancongs are high-roasted by the traditional Charcoal method; so these two new teas, their charcoal aroma will disappear after 2nd infusion; then comes out the lovely floral aroma mixed with honey fragrance. .

I haven’t had that many Phoenix Dancong teas before, but I never really was that fond of them until I purchased this sample.
When I was about to place my order, I figured I could add some cheap samples to try out. I am glad I did.
The first brewed cup had quite a smokey flavor and a slight fruity flavor in the background.
The second cup had very little smokeyness and was a lot more fruity than the first cup I brewed.
The third cup was very similar to the second cup I brewed, but a bit lighter, in a good way.
The fourth cup was worth brewing, but not that special tasting. Most of the sweetness had subsided and there was a vague fruity aroma left, but still an enjoyable cup.

I only used 2,5 grams and steeped the tea for 1:00, second 1:30, third 2:00 and fourth cup for 3:00.

I will definitely buy some more of this tea and also try out different varieties of Phoenix Dancong tea.
