The Story of Phoenix Dancong
Phoenix tea has been around for more than 900 years, dated back to the Song Dynasty in the 12th century, and said to be the origins of Oolong tea. In the 16th century, records showed that it became an imperial tribute tea, which led to continuous refinement by tea producers. By the late 19th century, Phoenix tea producers began to select distinctive cultivars and developed the concept of single bush (Dancong) processing – Tea was picked and processed individually from a single tea bush to preserve the unique flavour notes and characteristics of that particular cultivar. This is how Phoenix Dancong got its name and claimed its fame.
In modern days, Phoenix Dancong is classified with a systematic categorization according to the type of flavor note, such as floral, honey, fruity, almond etc. How many would you like to savour?
