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.

Chi Ye Bai Ye

This dark wulong from Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a a very great example of balanced charcoal roasting: light chestnut aromas with a side of ripe fruits and a lingering flowery breath in the finish.

This small cup comes with a lid and saucer and is used especially for infusing large leaf teas.

Qi Lan Xiang

Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong, this wulong  has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet.
