Green dancong is one of our most fragrant teas. Due to the special drying process that involves both heating and cooling, the leaves can keep their original fragrance: orchid, lily, and lilac. This overwhelming flower bouquet, is accompanied by the scent of fresh green grass. The aftertaste is mild and buttery with some refreshing, vivid buzz.

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).
