Fenghuang Dancong tea comes from Chao'an District, Chaozhou City, Guangdong Province. It is named after it is produced in Fenghuang Mountain and the tips of the leaves resemble a bird's beak. It is the most representative variety of Guangdong oolong tea. After several generations of cultivation by tea farmers, a tea tree was selected from a large number of tea trees and confirmed to have a unique and excellent aroma. This tea tree was then harvested and made individually, which is called "Dancong" mean is "single tree" .
And for modern times, the energy and time it takes to do so is prohibitive. After the popularization of grafting and cutting techniques, tea farmers can reproduce excellent individual plants and retain their original quality and aroma. Therefore, most of the current Phoenix Dancongs are made from the same type of tea trees, which reduces the price and allows more tea lovers to taste it.
The Legend of Phoenix Dancong:
It is said that in ancient times, Emperor Zhao Bing of the Song Dynasty was only 7 years old when he fled south. Passing through Fenghuang Mountain, it was in the wilderness, but Emperor Song was crying because of thirst, and the officials who followed him didn't know what to do. Suddenly there was a bright glow on the horizon, and a phoenix came with a green branch in its mouth. Emperor Song put the branches and leaves into his mouth and felt the refreshing fragrance, which stimulated the production of body fluids and quenched his thirst. The tea seeds on the branches also fell off and took root, becoming the originator of Shancong tea today. In fact, it may be that local tea growers presented Dancong tea soup with leaves shaped like beaks, which evolved into the current legend.
Tianyu's family follows the traditional charcoal baking process and is supervised by Mr. Ye Hanzhong, the intangible inheritor of Chaozhou Dancong tea making skills. The tea is harvested from the original place of Fenghuang Mountain, and every process from initial production to refined processing is taken seriously. On the basis of retaining the traditional style, a unique "orchid and cinnamon flavor" is formed. The aroma is restrained and the taste is mellow, ensuring the stability of tea quality and taste.
There are more than 200 fragrance types of Dancong tea. The local area classified Fenghuang Dancong, which has a similar fragrance and larger output, into the top ten fragrance types. Sandalwood is a more niche and special kind. The entrance is mellow and smooth, with obvious honey flavor and high foam resistance. The floral fragrance contains sandalwood and has a unique flavor.
