Description

Red Dancong is an exceptional tea of its kind, for in contrast with the basic (oolong) process for dancongs this time it is a black tea. Still, the tea’s dancong nature is unquestionable: it has an overwhelming flowery fragrance of orchid and acacia.
The flavour is mixture of mild honey and red grapes, with a hint of roasted vegetables. Thanks for its relatively high caffeine content, flowing through the body, the tea gently warms you up.

The well-known phoenix teas 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. In this case ‘dancong’ is used with its original meaning.
