Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea review


Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea (Teavivre)

3 min at 195°

Phoenix Dan Cong is a famous Tie Guan Yin from Guangdong Province. The tea has a high aroma with a different taste between the first sip and aftertaste. Along with the fragrance of sweet potato, an aroma of litchi will also be felt from the liquid. Be aware of the infusion of this tea. If you use gai wan, remember to quickly pour the liquid into your pitcher, instead of a long time’s infusion. A shorter time for the first brew will bring a more wonderful taste because the fruity aroma is stronger by now.

This is a smooth, earthy, rich tea of medium colour and flavour. I seriously recommend either brewing it for a shorter time or brewing it at a lower temperature or there can be overtones of bitterness and astringency but if brewed correctly, it is my favourite tea.

I don’t believe I’ve ever actually reviewed this tea- it’s the oolong on which I’m raising my Yixing mouse pot. This is the third Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong tea I have had. The first was from Teavana, the second from a seller on Amazon and now this one from Teavivre. This one is by far the best! It tastes fresher and some how just more.
