About Chao Zhou Phoenix Dan Cong Tea
This is a very famous Oolong tea from China ans also known as Phoenix bird oolong. Dan Cong is often translated as "Single Strain," named after tea bushes hundreds of years ago in which each bush produced a uniquely flavored tea. Phoenix Dancong is a select oolong tea from Guangdong province and was a tribute tea in the Song Dynasty. The leaves are harvested from a strain of trees that have been selected for careful breeding as straight trunk trees. These trees have a single trunk that rises straight up and the branches form an umbrella, making harvesting the leaves particularly difficult. Pickers use tall ladders or must climb the trees to harvest the long leaves.
This strain is light and slightly astringent, with a hint of tropical fruit. This tea absolute delight, from the lovely black leaves, to the complex aroma of the infusion which is a lovely golden yellow liquor, with a complex delicate woody, fruity taste. According to its different flavours, Dan Cong teas have been divided into many types, such as Zhi Orchid, Osmanthus, Yulan, Almond, Cinnamon, Ginger Flower, Jasmine, Honey Orchid, Huangzhi, Grapefruit, etc.. Colony, Egiht Immortals, Oriental Red, Song, City-wall are considered as high grade products.
The aromatic, hearty oolong has a clear orange-brown hue in the cup. The leaves reveal their oolong characteristics during infusion and turn definitively green in the center and red-brown on the edges. The second infusion is considered by many to be the best, with a desirerable, lingering aftertaste.
Pick up 1 spoon of Phoenix Oolong tea (About 5-8g) and threw into Glass Tea Cup (or Gai Wan) or Yixin clay teapot about 100-150ml. Pour water (70–75 °C ) (158°F - 167°F) and brewing about 3-5 minutes. It's better to preheat the teapot and cups before brewing this tea.
