Phoenix Dan Cong is a famous Tie Guan Yin from Guangdong Province. The tea has a high aroma with a different taste between the first sip and aftertaste. Along with the fragrance of sweet potato, an aroma of litchi will also be felt from the liquid. Be aware of the infusion of this tea. If you use gai wan, remember to quickly pour the liquid into your pitcher, instead of a long time’s infusion. A shorter time for the first brew will bring a more wonderful taste because the fruity aroma is stronger by now.
Our Guang Dong Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea is analysed in accordance with the requirements of regulation (EC) 396/2005 (regulation on maximum residue levels in food and feed) in its currently valid version.

Feel the aroma with a deep breath – let the fragrance travel to every corner in your mouth and nose – you will be brimming with the atmosphere of being in an orchard.

The Phoenix Mountain locates in Chaozhou, Guangdong. This area is close to the South China Sea. The climate here is warm, with sufficient rainfall. Tea trees are grown in the area above the altitude of 1000 meters, where the weather is cloudy and misty all the year round. Air moisture here is high and temperature between day and night is also very distinct. Average temperature is around 20℃, and annual precipitation is about 1800 millimeters. The fertile soil contains a abundant of organic matters and trace substance, which is helpful for tea tree’s grow and the forming of tea polyphenol and aromatic substance.
Once upon a time, there was a golden phoenix who had born two eggs in its nest on a high mountain, and hatched out two young phoenixes. After tough training and practice, the two phoenixes finally reached their goals and gained magic power. Since then where there was disaster, there were the two phoenixes. Peace will come along with the appearance of the phoenix. Not long after, stories about the two magical phoenix saving people soon spread out. Local people therefore gave the mountain where the phoenix lived a name, the Phoenix Mountain. As the mountain locates in Guangdong Province, it has abundant rain falls, which is very suitable for planting tea trees.

Drinking this right now, after a long morning of cross-country skiing and walking (it was amazing!)
As this is an oolong, I expected a strong and bold taste, but got a very humble and fragrant tea instead. I suppose it’s too smooth for my liking, maybe not even strong enough, though I steeped it for a long time. I think it would work really great as a base for some kind of blend, but alone it’s not interesting enough for me :(
I will drink the remaining sample with great pleasure, but I don’t think I’ll order this one. Have a nice week everyone!

I had high hopes for this tea since I had another phoenix oolong from the Tao of Tea which I really enjoy a lot. I tried two different temperatures for brewing with the first being closer to boiling and the second being closer to 190 degrees. I found no sweetness or fruitiness in this tea. Only bitterness and astringency. This leads me to believe that I must have done something wrong in my brewing process since every other reviewer liked this tea. I have one more sample so I can give it one more try.
The Phoenix is better to be brewed in shorter time. 2 minutes is too long which may cause bitter taste. You can try with 30 seconds if using tumbler to brew. The taste and flavor would be better. Or you can try to brew it with Gaiwan, yet remember to pour the liquid very quickly.
Excellent dan cong. This particular variety is heavier on the honey and smoky quality. It took me a couple of steeps to bring out the stone-fruit element I prefer.
Very nice tea. Tastes fairly similar to a bai hou oolong I purchased from a different store, but this one is milder and more complex.
I've been experimenting with this Phoenix Oolong the last couple days, brewing it both Western and Gong fu style. Either way, I found it to be very tasty with a deliciously fragrant aroma. When brewed in a gaiwan with a lot of leaf, I got multiple steepings, and picked up on honey, floral, and nectar-like notes as I went along. I modified Teavivre's instructions a little and used my 7 gm sample in 4 oz water),with good results. I have run out of time, so haven't made it to 12 infusions, but thus far, am very happy with this oolong. My husband is the bigger oolong drinker, as i lean toward blacks, but I anticipate re-ordering this since we both like it a lot.
Ноябрь для китайской почты оказался насыщенным событиями. Тут и съезд Компартии, и распродажи 11.11. Но, вот, посылки постепенно приходят на местную почту - чуть ли не скопом. А я ждал Даньцун, потому что предыдущий от Susu с taobao закончился. Это улун Даньцун Guang Dong Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea из Гуандуна от магазина Teavivre.com
Что меня всегда радует в этом магазине - сервис. И email - что мы приняли заказ, что мы работаем над ним, что мы его отправили, и банка в посылке без единой вмятины, и сама банка для чая - очень практичная. Две крышки и чай в запаяном пакете.
От сухой заварки идет прекрасный запах летнего луга и нотки меда.
Такой же сладкий медово-травяной вкус и заваренного чая. Чай приятный, сладкий, с насыщенным вкусом. Заваривать лучше всего кипятком, но короткими проливами - тогда во вкусе превалируют медово-сухофруктовые оттенки.
Чай легкий. Это не уже нежный зеленый, но и не тяжелый красный. Такой баланс мне нравится. Особенно, когда за окошком 22 градуса мороза, и совсем легкий чай покажется остужающим, а не согревающим. Но это личные ощущения, а так - чай очень понравился!
I was mistaken by the name of this tea and in my excitement bought it thinking it was a Taiwanese Phoenix Oolong. It turns out to be a Chinese Phoenix oolong.
Despite the regional differences, I very much enjoy this tea. It steeps many times with great body, flavor and a distinct flowery aroma that I expect from Phoenix oolong. I enjoy this tea for it's quality and flavor.
