From Tealux

Huang Zhi Xiang is one of our most elegant Phoenix Oolong teas. Its name loosely translates to “Orange Blossom Fragrance” because of the hint of citrus oil in the tea’s natural aroma.

Our “Huang Zhi Xiang” is made from clones of an old Feng Huang Dancong tree that is more than 600 years old. It has a unique and rare intensity. Due to the limited amount of 30- to 50-year-old trees that were propagated from that old Dancong tree.

The tea is finished somewhere between a “Qing” and “Nong Xiang” at an oxidation rate of about 25%. The result is a preservation of the brighter citrus oil character of the varietal while delivering a rounder, honey-like quality to the tea. We selected this tea over another more brilliantly floral character because of its thicker, smoother character and more pronounced and persistent finish, an indication of the age and lineage of this tea.

Drinking this at work this morning.
Unusual Dancong, or unlike others I’VE tried.
This is less oxidized than what I normally prefer, I would say is a medium oxidized oolong.
It isn’t as green or floral as I was expecting. There are some citrus notes, but none of the woody that I associate with dancong. There is quite a bit of the “suck all the moisture out of your mouth sensation”. I really need to find the proper word for that sensation.
I’m sure there are others out there that would really like this tea. It just doesn’t fit into my favorite style.
Thank you so much TheTeaFairy for sending this sample to me. Always interesting to experience teas that are outside my comfort zone. :))
