Phoenix Mountain is a famous region with centuries of tea cultivation history. Here, teas are categorized by their distinct cultivar type called a dancong, meaning "single-trunk tree." Each dancong has a unique varietal character. We taste dozens of Fenghuang Dancong cultivar samples each year and select the most floral and aromatic micro-lots for Phoenix Dancong.

Tasting Notes: Enchanting and nectar-like, with vivid flavors of nectarine and wildflower honey

Ingredients: Oolong tea.

Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

Standard Brewing Instructions:
Water Temperature: 212°F (boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 2 minutes (second infusion), 4 minutes (3rd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
