Product Description

Phoenix Mt. Wudong Dancong Oolong Huang Zhi Xiang "Gardenia" 2011 Spring Premium Tea is a rare and wonderful experience.

Dancong Oolong tea is famous for its floral fragrance and long-lasting sweetness. In addition, the tea soup thickness is a characteristic that is highly sought-after by many tea connoisseurs.

This Huang Zhi Xiang (Gardenia) Dancong belongs to the gardenia aroma category. It has a natural, strong gardenia aroma that is very unique and pleasing when you smell it and drink the tea. The gardenia aroma is produced during the production process, and only the gardenia tea bush can create this aroma and taste. Other tea bush varieties in Dancong can't produce this aroma and taste at all. After many infusions, the gardenia aroma still persists and some honey sweet taste is detectable on the palate.

This tea is a medium-roasted tea. You may store it at normal temperature for a long time. As an aged tea, this oolong has a better medical effect and is commonly drunk by local people.

All of our Dancong is sourced directly from tea farmers. My tea supplier personally visits the farmers and selects only the finest teas.
