Full Description 

Commonly known as "Aroma Heaven" or in Chinese, Tong Tian Xiang 通天香, is a name derived from local folklore, but by category it belongs to ginger or ginger flower. Cultivated at an elevation of 900 to 1000 meters (which is high mountain for Phoenix Mountain), this tea is from the ancestral village of making Phoenix Dan Cong, Wu Dong Village.  It’s one of the most venerable Dan Cong tea tree types and one of the oldest aromatic categories. 

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.
