Straight from the beautiful mountain in Guangdong Province that is named after the legendary phoenix. Humid weather combined with cool, high-altitude temperatures and very fertile soil results in one of China’s most famous medium-roast dark oolongs.

The Phoenix mountain near Chaozhou (Guangdong province) has a long tradition of producing oolong tea since the Tang Dynasty and became more popular during the Qing dynasty. In 1982, Phoenix Mountain's oolong tea has been awarded and recognised as Chinese's famous national tea. The region has a mild and humid climate. The best Phoenix Dan Cong tea leaves grow in the parts of the mountain 1000 meters above sea level. Read about the history and origin of dan cong oolong tea.

In the video below we show how you could make a phoenix dan cong in a Yixing gaiwan.


Tip: the most traditional way to enjoy Chinese Oolong Tea is using small “gongfu” tea cups, i.e. cups so small that the tea is finished in one small sip. These cups help discipline one to savor tea with patience, aka ‘gongfu’. Only drinking Phoenix Dan Cong slowly and patiently will allow one fully appreciate its unique flavors.
