Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tong Tian Xiang Heavenly Fragrance

$ 27.00

Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong is known for its variety of fragrances and the rich mineral content of its tea leaves. The dry leaves are usually twisted and dark. The leaves have a reddish edge, which is a result of a process called Peng Qing or Yao Qing, which 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 period.

Tong Tian means the aroma is so strong and long that it can reach the heavens, Xiang means fragrance. As the name suggests, this tea has strong floral aroma, predominantly of Ginger flower, so this tea is also referred to as Ginger Fragrance. It is very smooth, buttery and sweet. Like other Phoenix Dan Congs we offer, this tea has layers of spice and fruity notes awaiting your discovery. The aroma and the tropical fruity notes are so captivating that oolong tea lovers will rarely find a more pleasant cup. 

The floral and fruity notes of this tea occur naturally, no artificial flavor agents or  oil extracts are added to enhance the flavor of the tea.
