This semi-wild Honey Orchid Phoenix Dan Cong oolong is completely hand-harvested, processed and roasted produced  from early spring semi-wild bushes “Dan Cong” at the foot of Wu Dong Shan. The term “Dan Cong” means single bush. Most tea bushes grow from the ground in a cluster of branches, but Dan Cong plants emerge as a single trunk that branches off a little higher from the ground. Its caoba brown leaves are long and slightly twisted and turn olive green once they are infused and brew a very bright orange cup.

The most amazing thing about this tea however is its unbelievably intense aroma and taste… At first one might think this is a flavored tea, but its sweet, floral and fruity notes are pure and authentic products of the tea varietal and its 40% oxidation. This tea handles many infusions and you'll note a wide array of nuances in aroma and flavor randing from roasted almonds and wood to floral notes with a hint of peach in nose and fruity flavor reminiscent of mango, lychee, orchids (of course) and a velvety finish.
