Product Description

Phoenix Mt. Wudong Dancong Oolong Huang Zhi Xiang "Gardenia" 2011 Spring Nonpareil Song Variety Tea is a rare and wonderful experience. This nonpareil Huang Zhi Xiang is harvested from the 100 years old tea trees that are the descendants of 400 hundred year old Song Zhong Huang Zhi Xiang tree.

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 for many tea connoisseurs.

The Huang Zhi Xiang 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 directly from the Li Zai Ping village, the highest altitude village in Mt Wudong. It possesses the delicate and high mountain taste with high gardenia aroma. This is a rare tea that is only available in limited quantities and seldom seen outside of China.

This tea is a high-roasted tea. You may store it at normal temperature for a long time. As a high-roasted tea, this oolong is reported to have better medicinal qualities and is commonly drunk by the 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.

Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea, better known as Huangzhi Xiang Dancong, is crafted from the leaves of the Dancong bushes growing on the Phoenix Mountain of Guangdong Province. Typical of Dancong teas, it is described as having contradictory body and aftertaste. Dancong tea names usually represent flowers because of their floral smell. Dancong Oolong Tea was a tribute tea during the Song Dynasty.
