Full Description 

The traditional Chinese name from folklore of this tea is "Lei Pi Chai" or "Thunder Struck Wood", but this tea nestles in the subtype under the prestigious aromatic category of Gardenia Aroma. Cultivated at an elevation of 700 meters (which is high mountain for Phoenix Mountain) from trees that are roughly 60 years old, it’s one of the most venerable Dan Cong tea tree types and one of the oldest aromatic categories. Its garden-fresh floral aroma will seduce into reminiscence of a mountain surrounded by mists and fog.

Cultivated in mineral rich soil, this tea thrives in the coastal environment in Canton province on Phoenix Mountain. Both wild and farmed, these tea trees can reach the ripe old age of 200 years. This special type of Oolong is recognized for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma. Believed to be the ancestor of all Oolong teas, it’s well-known for its ten aromatic categories and its rich and complex flavor.

Local tea scholars and connoisseurs from China study and organize the hand-picked tea into hundreds of aromatic subgroups. Its aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated, and each aroma comes from the tea plant’s natural aromatic compound.

The first Dan Cong you should try.

In my first order to Serene, I got the Dan Cong experience and choose the Gardenia. This tea is delicious from the same first moment. This is not the first Dan Cong Oolong I'd tried, however I would love to have begin with this. It has a very depth flavor and I think it is just perfect to introduce yourself to Oolongs, because it is not as smoky as Mi Lan, nor as floral as the Duckshit. I would recommend to anyone who is indecisive about where to start because you would definitely appreciate the taste and the beautiful aroma. For non-beginners, we also appreciate a fantastic tea that we could drink all year long.

Favorite Phoenix Dan Cong

The depth and aroma of this tea is our new favorite! You can tell this tea is really high quality because even when over-steeped, the bitterness does not last long on the palette.
