Angel's Comment:

It has unique almond aroma, blending with the high mountain tea liquid, rich, complicate and attractive.

Ju Duo Zai, also named Xing Ren Xiang (almond aroma), it belongs to one of the ten types of flavor of Phoenix Dan Cong, which is named by its unique almond aroma. TeaVivre’s Xing Ren Xiang (Almond Aroma) Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea is a light roasted oolong with two times baked. Compared with Nonpareil Wudong Ya Shi Xiang Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea, the tea leaves of this Xing Ren Xiang Dan Cong is relatively small, and it took longer time for tea farmers to pick, which also make it precious for each cup of tea.

 

We can smell an obvious almond aroma and slight roasted aroma in the dry leaves. After inject the hot water, the deep and various fragrance of the tea will be released out -- floral and fruit fragrance are scattered, with a hint of milk aroma. Its tea liquid is bright orange in color; the entrance is delicate, giving a sweet, fragrant feeling along with the full-bodied mouthfeel. Meanwhile, the tea fragrance merges well with the liquid, after being swallowed, the aroma gradually fills up the mouth with the aftertaste from the throat. Overall, the fragrance of this tea is calm and long-last, which is soothing and relaxing.

Origin

The Chaozhou Phoenix Mountain is known for its tea, among the 73 Phoenix Mountains. It has beautiful scenery, fresh air, and a humid and mild climate, with an annual average temperature of about 20℃ and average annual precipitation of around 2100 mm. This mountain is not only a tourist destination, but also the main production region of China’s well-known Phoenix Dan Cong oolong tea, which draws its unique fragrance and taste from the area’s climate and soil. In 1982, Dan Cong was recognized as one of the 32 most famous teas in China. Phoenix Mountain has a total of over 20,000 acres devoted to tea gardens, among which is an ancient tea forest of over 3,000 trees all between 200 and 400 years of age, with some “Song Zhong Tea King” trees as old as 600 years.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Wen and his families are all native Chaozhou people who plant and make teas, and his parents made Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong teas as long as he can remember. Later, Mr. Wen inherited his parents' craftsmanship, and has been insisting on making teas with traditional charcoal-baked craft for many years, stirring and baking teas in time, which takes time and energy but with low efficient, only 5kg teas each time. Even though, in Mr. Wen and his families’ view, it deserves to persist in traditional craft. Wudong Dan Cong Oolong Tea, planted and made by hard-working Wudong tea farmers with heart, is not only a simple good tea in quality, but also a super tea absorbing the essence of nature and the spirit of ancient tea trees.

Tea Bush

Ju Duo Zai is bred from the natural hybrid progeny of the phoenix narcissus. People in Chao Shan used to call it “Ju Duo Zai”, because of its saw-like leaf edge. It belongs to the middle leaf type, long ellipse, and is characterized by glossy leaf surface and deep leaf color.

History

There is a legend that during the Song Dynasty, the Emperor passed by Phoenix Mountain. He was quite thirsty and asked one of his soldiers to pick some tea leaves for him to drink, and on doing so, the Emperor realized the unique quality of the tea. From then on, people specially grew this kind of tree, and named it Song Zhong.

With the 1990s came an increase in the area used to grow tea, and as such, the production quality of that tea has also improved. From 1982 and on, Phoenix has earned many Chinese tea awards. Dan Cong tea has always been known as the king of tea, with many tea lovers all over the world regarding it as a treasure.
