What Is Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea?

Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea, known as Fenghuang Dancong in Chinese, originates from the illustrious Phoenix Mountain in Chaozhou, Guangdong Province. The name “Dancong” means “single bush,” highlighting the unique practice of harvesting leaves from individual tea trees. This method preserves the distinct flavor profile of each tree, resulting in a tea with a rich array of aromatic complexities. The tea is celebrated for its sophisticated floral and fruity notes, making it a coveted choice for tea connoisseurs. Each variety, such as Huang Zhi Xiang (gardenia aroma) and Mi Lan Xiang (honey orchid aroma), offers a unique tasting experience that reflects the specific terroir of its origin.

The history of Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea is steeped in tradition, dating back over 900 years to the Song Dynasty. The Feng Huang dan cong tea originated in the high-altitude regions of Phoenix Mountain, where local farmers discovered the area’s exceptional growing conditions. These conditions, including rich, rocky soil and a humid, misty climate, provided the perfect environment for cultivating high-quality tea. Over the centuries, the farmers refined their cultivation and processing techniques, transforming Phoenix Dancong into a highly respected tea. It was traditionally reserved for royalty and dignitaries, signifying its esteemed status. Today, Phoenix Dancong continues to embody the rich cultural heritage of Chaozhou, celebrated for its unique flavors and historical significance.

The meticulous processing of Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea is key to its distinctive character and high quality. The Feng Huang dan cong tea leaves are harvested once a year during the first flush of spring, ensuring that only the freshest and most nutrient-rich leaves are used. Adhering to the “Four No-Pick” principles, leaves are selected with great care, avoiding harvesting in foggy, rainy, or overly sunny conditions, as well as avoiding overly tender or old leaves. The harvested leaves undergo night-time withering and morning frying, taking advantage of the cool night temperatures to enhance their fragrance. The tea is then charcoal roasted four times over 30 days, a traditional method that infuses the leaves with a deep, complex flavor. This thorough process ensures that Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea delivers a rich, smooth taste with enduring floral and fruity notes that can be enjoyed over multiple infusions

How to Select Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong?

For customers who are new to feng huang dancong oolong tea, here are four tips to help you select desired ones:

  1. Appearance of the Tea Leaves: High-quality Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea is distinguishable by the appearance of its leaves. The leaves should be tightly twisted, robust, and glossy with a dark, oily sheen, indicating proper processing and high levels of care in production. Uniformity in the size and shape of the leaves reflects skilled craftsmanship and meticulous handling. Ideally, the Feng Huang dan cong tea leaves should be long and slightly curled, avoiding any broken or uneven pieces that often signify lower quality or improper handling. A consistent appearance suggests that the tea has been carefully selected and processed. The visual appeal of the leaves is a crucial first indicator of the tea’s quality, setting the stage for the aroma and flavor profile to follow.
  2. Aroma Profile: The aroma of Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea is a key determinant of its quality. Fresh, high-quality tea will exude a pronounced, complex fragrance with layers of floral, fruity, and honey notes. When you first open the package, the aroma should be strong and inviting, free from any musty or off-putting smells. Each variety, such as Huang Zhi Xiang (gardenia aroma) or Mi Lan Xiang (honey orchid aroma), should have a distinctive, signature scent. The richness and persistence of the aroma are indicators of the Feng Huang dan cong tea’s freshness and high quality. A superior aroma profile not only enhances the drinking experience but also provides a preview of the delightful flavors to come, making it a critical factor in assessing quality.
  3. Flavor and Mouthfeel: The taste and mouthfeel of Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea are paramount in assessing its quality. A superior Feng Huang dan cong tea will deliver a balanced, rich flavor profile with noticeable floral and fruity notes, complemented by a smooth, sweet undertone. The mouthfeel should be velvety and full-bodied, providing a satisfying experience with each sip. High-quality tea will also have a lingering aftertaste that is both sweet and fragrant, leaving a pleasant sensation long after you’ve finished your cup. The complexity and depth of flavor are hallmarks of premium Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea. Additionally, the tea should maintain its vibrant flavor profile through multiple infusions, highlighting its exceptional quality and depth.
  4. Leaf Quality After Brewing: Examining the tea leaves after brewing is an effective way to judge the quality of Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea. High-quality Feng Huang dan cong oolong tea leaves will unfurl completely, revealing their true size and shape. They should be soft, pliable, and exhibit a fresh, vibrant green color with red edges. The leaves should not disintegrate or turn mushy, which indicates poor quality. Additionally, the brewed leaves should retain their aromatic qualities, reflecting the tea’s inherent freshness and high-grade processing. The condition of the leaves post-brewing provides a clear indication of the tea’s overall quality and craftsmanship. The way the leaves open up and maintain their structure is a testament to the meticulous processing methods used, ensuring a superior tea experience
