Full Description

This is a charcoal roasted Mao Cha of Phoenix Dan Cong Mi Lan/Honey Orchid Aroma. When a Dan Cong tea arrives the drying stage but without baking yet, it’s called a Mao Cha, otherwise it's a finished tea. Mao Cha doesn't typically get charcoal roasted, but our Dan Cong farmer, farmer Xu, likes experimenting with charcoal roast. You will get an interesting comparing experience of different nuances at each stage if you drink our Mi Lan Xiang Mao Cha, this charcoal roast Mi Lan Mao Cha and the charcoal roast Mi Lan Xiang. Dan Cong teas usually get charcoal roasted in July and need to be rested for a month before consumption, so the "charcoal flavor" can slowly fade away and won't overpower. The purpose of charcoal roasting teas is to enhance the fragrance and give a more smooth mouthfeel. 

From the coastal area in Canton province, Phoenix Mountain possesses mineral-rich soil and is constantly surrounded by mists and fog, covered by wild tea tress and tea farms, as well as the folklore of the Phoenix Dan Cong Tea. Many wild tea trees are at least 100 to 200 years old. It’s a special type of Oolong treasured for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma, and is well-known for its ten major aromatic groups. Dan Cong teas are named and classified by their aromas, and the aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated as a cultivar.
