Full Description

Ye Lai Xiang or Tuberose Aroma, is named after the Tuberose flower that blooms only at night with a strong distinctive fragrance. It’s one of Phoenix Dan Cong’s most recognized bouquet-like aromas for its memorable floral notes, however, a really high quality Ye Lai Xiang is hard to come by. This year we decided to upgrade this tea to farmer Liu’s old bush Tuberose Aroma in order to bring our tea drinkers a new Dan Cong experience and to gain new understanding of the quality difference. We strongly encourage you to try this amazing one of a kind tea. 

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.

Region

Feng Huang (Phoenix) Mountain, Canton, China

Brewing Instruction

Gai Wan or ceramic pot

Add 6gram/1 tbsp

95 C / 205 F

Ceramic Teapot:

  • Add 8oz water and infuse for 3 min.
  • Repeat for another 4+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 30 seconds with each additional infusion

Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):

  • Rinse leaves and discard the first infusion
  • Add water and infuse for 10 seconds for 3 infusions
  • Repeat for another 10+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 10 seconds with each additional infusion

We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
