This Phoenix dancong is rare in many ways. It is the best Eight Immortals we have tasted, including award winning ones. Not only is it mild but flavorful like a good Baxian should be, but also gently and yet persistently fragrant. On top of that, it is so softly baked but with enough depth to attain a low acidity for better friendliness to the weaker stomach. Not an easy task for making a bouquet dancong. Master Lin who grows this is a shy and mild person and an old friend. We could not be offering it at such great value otherwise.
Sweet, floral aroma with accents of ripen plum and raw honey. Freshness sensation of the woods after the rain. Infusion of silky tactility. Bright, tingly sweetness in smooth body. Accents of kumquat and apricot. Aftertaste of freshness and light sweetness with hints of dried dates.
This tea is great for normal infusion — i.e. 1g in 100ml water for 5 minutes — in the pot or in the mug. Basing on 90°C, increase the temperature for more aroma and increased brightness, decrease for a softer effect. This is an outstanding tea for gongfu infusion with the gaiwan. Start with 20 seconds in a 140ml medium-thin thickness porcelain gaiwan with 4g of leaves and 95°C water. Adjust these parameters to your preference. Water is crucial in fine traditional oolongs infusion. Avoid water with lots of minerals, or that has been over-boiled.
