凤凰山 – Phoenix Mountain
Guangdong Province, China
Strong, energising tea with golden brew that combines both roasted and flowery notes.
There can be no doubt whether or not it is a dancong from the Phoenix mountain: round, creamy body with sweet fragrance of orchid and acacia. The primal fiery notes later turn into a greener, deep sweetness.
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, as it does in this case too, often refers to a certain scent/savour.
