If classic Phoenix oolongs are too sweet, and bouquet ones too florally aromatic for you, Tea Hong’s Black Leaf Special maybe your cup of tea. It is produced from a new cultivar developed for maltiness and complexity in taste. A very different oolong from the rest. Our special selection is harvested from higher altitudes near the oolong mecca that is Wudong.
Lightly sweet floral aroma with a warm, creamy tone. Bright, malty body with a suggestion of apple juice. Elegantly complex accents of fresh herbs and bites of citrus peel bitterness. Long, sweet aftertaste.
Great for conventional approach, but even better in the specialist gongfu approach using a gaiwan. 90°C for a softer body, +3~5° for more aroma and some sharpness. Use slightly less leaf if using conventional approach to understand the tea to later adjust according to personal preference.
Traditional style Huangshan Maofeng is yellowish from the heating style during processing. There is also a new and greener style. For a fresher, lighter tasting alternative that some people may prefer. Tea Hong’s Huangshan Cuiyu is produced from plucking before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April — for optimum quality.
A great showcase for why the name of the tea came about centuries ago, great discipline in the use of fire distinguishes Cassia Extraordinaire from most other Wuyi varieties with a supple, deliciously floral and delicate scent balanced with a full, lively body. This is Wuyi Cassia at its best.
Finer winter Phoenix oolongs have always been sought after for their unforgettable natural bouquet fragrances. To us, an aroma of a premium tea has to be complete with a winning taste profile. It has taken us over a decade to fine tune the mastery of the processing of the choicest harvest to attain a result we can be proud of. Presenting Tea Hong’s very own Snow Orchid, the roundest, smoothest, and by far the most seductively fragrant oolong ever known. It is our luscious indulgence secretly from Nature.
No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do.
