Add to my notebook

This dark wulong from the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a true classic in modern Dan Cong style.

From the well-known Fengxi village, the Mi Lan Xiang cultivar (litt. “Honey Orchid Fragrance”) really is the flagship of the genre.

Zesty, hoppy and wildly fragrant, its orchid and litchi sub-structure make it a seriously complex tea. Also, a clear favourite among Guangdong producers.

Gaiwan from Ms. Sheng | Duan Ni

The unique tone of this Yixing gaiwan is the result of multiple firings: six firings rather than two and this Duan Ni (yellow clay) piece is transformed into a complex material. As a finishing touch, the very last firing in the wood kiln gives rarity and richness to Ms Sheng's work.
