Honey Orchid Dan Cong Oolong Tea

Honey Orchid Dan Cong Oolong Tea


(rating: 2.5 out of 5)

Honey Orchid Dan Cong Oolong Tea is crafted from the leaves of the Dan Cong bushes growing on Phoenix Mountain of Guangdong Province. Typical of Dan Cong teas, it is described as having contradictory body and aftertaste. Dan Cong names ussually represent a flower because of the floral smell it has. Honey Orchid Dan Cong Oolong Tea simply means Honey Orchid fragrant. Honey Orchid Dan Cong Oolong Tea is a tea of extraordinary distinction.

Price & Size :


Quantity :  

Other names:
Feng Huang Select, Phoenix Select, Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong

Taste:
A coppery fruitiness fades into a savory flavor of honey and orchid aroma. Some says it has a sweet lychee flavor. Suitable for multiple infusions.

Appearance:
This tea has long, unbroken leaves which are hand twisted.

Origin:
Feng Huang Shan, Guangdong Province

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2 - 5 grams (1-5 teaspoons) full with tea leaves for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.

 

I was surprised by the tea. My first Dan Cong. I expected a first strong bitter taste following by a sweet one. This tea (or at least the way I brewed it) was simply sweet, honey-sweet. I found it pleasant, specially as I have a sweet tooth. Maybe I would be looking for more body though. I had tried to combine it with other teas but have not found a succesful mariage yet. But I like its sweet simplicity and will reorder

I ordered this item almost 6 weeks ago and I have never received it. The customer service is not responding to me when I ask for a refund!!!!
