From Teance

2010 Spring Harvest.
Moderate Caffeine
Phoenix Mountain, Guangdong
Steepings: 6

Highly recommended for Phoenix Oolong fans, as this is one of the rarest of the rare. Only fewer than 5 trees produce this fragrance. Grown at the peak of Wudong Mountain in the Phoenix range, hundred year old trees that produce about 10 lbs. of leaves per year are hand harvested meticulously. Greatly in demand, these rare Phoenix teas are only available because of our excellent relationship with the caretakers.

Citrus floral notes on a woody base, with a soothing and persistent aftertaste as well as hints of magnolia aroma.

I used the last 15 min. searching high and low for this tea in Steepster.
Couldn’t find it, so I hope you’ll forgive me if I made a dobbelganger.

The steeping time is only 45 seconds! I’ll let you know that I thought of many rude jokes about the steeping time (some of them comparing this tea with men) but I’ll spare you and just tell you that I had a good grin while counting to 45. The finished product was this bright yellow liquid. VERY bright yellow liquid. The tea smells very oolong tea like (sour leafs) but I can’t catch the fragrance mentioned on the package.

I smiled after the first sip – this tea got everything I remember oolongy, but with a sweet note at the middle. A fruity orange-ish note. Maybe that’s the pommelo flower fragrance? The tea has a sweet and bitter aftertaste that stays with you for some time. Uh-uh! Now I remember this taste! I once read that roses was edible and had a rose eating period. This taste like biting a raw rose! (Please don’t ask into it)

I have to thank Thomas Smith for this tea – he have sent me a package full of pure tea (isn’t he great!?) And I blessed him a 1000 times for sending me some da Hong Pao!!!
Thomas – you and your family have good luck for the next 800 years ;)
