Add to my notebook

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.

Mi Lan Xiang Feng Xi

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

Bai Rui Xiang

A worthy representative of the rock wulongs, this wulong with delicately rolled leaves was only slightly roasted, preserving its flavourful vegetal (courgette) and floral fineness. Its full and tangy (tangerine) liquor, deploys rich tropical (durian) and honeyed aromas.

Chi Ye Bai Ye
