Origin: China


Phoenix Dancong Oolong (凤凰单or Fenghuang Dancong) is a type of dark oolong tea from Phoenix Mountain in China’s southern Guangdong province. The word "Dancong" translates to "single stem", meaning that the loose tea is from one stem of a single tea bush, and originates from a specific Phoenix Shuixian varietal bush.

The fragrant loose leaf is dark brown with light colors leaves throughout, long twisted whole leaves that exude a deep sweet aroma. Once steeped the lightness of the leaf is released, and you will visually see unfurled green leaf in your cup. The liquor is clear bright warm golden, and at first sip you will appreciate the rich stone fruit flavor, mineral body and orchid sweetness.

Enjoy a delicious cup of our fine Guangdong Phoenix Dancong Oolong and experience the full complexity in each steep.

It reminds me of a genmaicha, but more complex. This has very quickly become one of my favorites.

Quite a roasty taste on top of a typical Phoenix Mountain mineral undertone. Astringent, but not overbearingly so. Reasonable quality tea for the price and a pleasant drink particularly for the cold months.

This tea is great!!! I tried the Dan Cong tea two years ago in a friend's house and then never forget. Now I can enjoy my own in the Autumn's morning. The trick is NOT make a strong Dan Cong tea which may ruin all the nice features this tea have.
