Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Pomelo Flower Fragrance You Hua Xiang

No reviews

Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong is known for its variety of fragrances and the rich mineral content of its tea leaves. The dry leaves usually are twisted with a dark color. The leaves have a reddish edge, which is a result of a process called Peng Qing or Yao Qing, that is an oxidation process unique to the making of oolong tea. After the Peng Qing process, the tea is slightly or moderately baked several times, depending on the type of tea and desired storage time.

This tea was sourced by Victoria from her Phoenix Mountain spring 2017 tea trip, made by tea master Liu. Mr. Liu is from the local Liu family has been making phoenix oolong for over 30 years. True to its namesake, this tea is certainly suggestive of pomelo fruit, but there’s an exciting complexity to the flavor that goes beyond. It has buttery smooth and creamy, with a note of natural pomelo flower fragrance and hints of passion fruit and pomegranate.
