Brandnew vintage of the famous Honey Orchid Dancong.
This Milan Xiang is a medium-roasted dancong from the Phoenix Mountain, China.
A kind flowery tea with a relaxing warming effect. While its fragrance is an exciting mixture of cocoa, roasted nuts, and papaya, the main taste profile is dominated by notes of honey and citrus. The long aftertaste has a sweet, slightly jasmine-like character, which remains in the mouth for a good half an hour.
The well-known phoenix oolongs are famous for their impressive fragrance and long-lasting, round, creamy flavor.
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/savor.
Taste of honey, sunflower seeds, and the crust of the toast, while it has a nice warming effect.
