More About Fenghuang Dancong
What is Dancong?
Dancong tea is produced in Phoenix Town, named after Phoenix Mountain. The name "Dancong" is due to the fact that in the old days, only the fresh leaves from a single tea tree were picked to make the tea, and in modern times, the effort and time spent on doing so are too high, so nowadays, most of the Phoenix Dancong is made by picking a single variety of tea trees together.
The origin of Fenghuang Dancong ?
Phoenix Mountain is composed of hundreds of peaks, large and small, surrounded by thin clouds, dense fog, warm climate and abundant rain, creating a good growth environment for the famous Phoenix tea tree.
In the Song Dynasty, the people of Fenghuang Mountain discovered the red yin tea tree with the tip of the leaf like a crane's mouth. When Emperor Song was chased by Yuan soldiers, he fled south to Chaozhou. As a result, the folks produced and circulated the story of "Song Emperor passed through Wuyu Mountain and was unbearably thirsty.
The mountain people offered red Yin tea soup, and after drinking it, he praised it as a good tea". Therefore, later generations called it Song tea; There is even a mythical legend that "the phoenix bird heard that the Song Emperor and others were thirsty, and gave tea with a tea branch in its mouth". Therefore, the name of "bird's mouth tea" was gradually called by the people.
Legends are legends. In fact, during the Southern Song Dynasty, the people of Phoenix Mountain had sporadically planted beak tea trees. Wudong Village not only grows beak tea trees, but also has a certain scale.
During the Hongzhi period of the Ming Dynasty, Fenghuang Dancong tea, which was produced in Daizhao Mountain, has become a tribute, and it is called 'Dai Zhao Tea'.待诏茶
