Honey Orchid Dancong
- Brewing tips
Tasting notes: Honey, floral, mango
Origin: Mt. Phoenix, Chaozhou, China
Cultivar: Dancong Honey Orchid Scent
Brisk, complex and smooth with a sweet aftertaste, this highly aromatic oolong tea exhibits notes of mango, lychee and honey.
Why we love it:
- It's a Dancong - a dramatically aromatic type of oolong from Phoenix Mountain (鳳凰山) in Chaozhou. These oolongs are often described as "drinkable perfume".
- The tea grows in a biodiverse environment with mineral-rich soils, which translates to extra layers and complexity in the flavour of the tea.
- Our Honey Orchid Scent is grown on Wudong Mountain, one of the highest in the Phoenix Mountain range that is almost perpetually enshrouded in mist. Wudong is home to the purest tea groves and cleanest processing of the entire region.
Honey Orchid Scent is one of the 10 signature fragrances of Phoenix Dancong teas. Dancong (單欉) means “single bush”, i.e., teas consisting of leaves from a single cultivar or plant. In essence this means that more or less each fragrance comes from its own cultivar.
To clarify, none of the teas are artificially scented. Each cultivar has a naturally occurring fragrance that is accentuated through artisan processing and brewing methods.
