Phoenix Dancong (Honey Orchid Scent) | 鳳凰單欉蜜蘭香

Tasting notes: Fragrant, honey orchid, floral

Grown in the mineral-rich soil and biodiverse environment of Phoenix Mountain (鳳凰山 Fenghuang Shan) in Chaozhou, Dancong oolong teas are famous for being dramatically aromatic—so aromatic that they’re often described as “drinkable perfume”. One of the most popular Dancongs, Honey Orchid Scent is medium-roasted with a creamy mouthfeel, a honey sweetness and a powerful floral fragrance.

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 Dancong 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.

Another one of our absolute favourites, this tea has a beautiful fragrance that will stay with you all day. Try it cold-brewed—the fragrance is incredible!

We recommend brewing Dancongs gongfu style to get the full sensory experience that develops with each infusion. Dancong oolongs exhibit a remarkable ‘patience’ (耐泡 nai pao)—meaning they last for many infusions.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
