This dark wulong from the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a true classic in modern Dan Cong style.
Feng Huang Hong Cha
Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
These long twists release, once infused, charming fragrances of flowers and warm honey. Its liquor, slightly tart and flavorful, displays intense aromas of berries (blackcurrant) and roasted chestnuts.
Enhanced by a delicate bite, tempered by its malty (barley sugar) character, its finish is long and comforting.
