The dry leaves have essences of vanilla, mango, and lychee. They are long, black, and twisted.
Brewed, the liquor is a beautiful light golden amber with scents of honeysuckle and peach. The leaves unfurl and turn moss green.
The flavor is mostly floral and it has a slight astringency. All of the nectar and honey notes are in the scent and the flavor is all flowers.
This Oolong is amazing in its transformation! Now I see why this is called the Phoenix!
