凤凰山 – Phoenix Mountain
Guangdong Province, China
Kind and soft, almost silky; the tea’s greatest merit lies in its outstanding floweriness and gentle playfulness. Despite the fresh flavour, Dancong Supreme is a calm and relaxed tea that is a perfect company for afternoon readings.
The well-known phoenix oolongs are famous for their impressive fragrance and long-lasting, round, creamy flavour.
The term dancong (单枞) originally meant phoenix teas all picked from one tree. In recent times though it has become a generic term for all Phoenix Mountain (凤凰山, Fenghuang) oolongs. The dancongs’ name often refers to a certain scent/savour (e.g. milan xian, honey-orchid fragrance).
