Making its first apparition on our list this year, this dark wulong from the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is named after its cultivar, the Tong Tian Xiang (litt. “Heaven’s scent”).

In true modern Dan Cong style, this tea bursts with floral aromas (gardenia, lilies) right off the rinse, while steeping reveals a rich aromatic body with notes of peach and caramelised sugar. Generously coating the taste buds, it leaves in the mouth a long and powerful after-taste.
