Feng Huang (Phoenix) Dan Cong is a dark and strongly roasted oolong from Chaozhou in northern Guangdong. I actually bought it just to know what tea would come from the home of the famous elaborate Chaozhou Gongfu Cha. I imagined it tasting somewhat like Da Hong Pao, but it turned out very different. The brew is lighter, the tint reminded me of less concentrated filter coffee. It has incredible apricot and tangerine aromas. Not the smokey notes, rather with a sweet roasted taste.
