Baxian Supreme:

This Fenghuang 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. The baked finish is optimise for depth in taste. This gives side benefits for friendliness to the weaker stomach as well as the potential for maturity. Not an easy task for making a bouquet style Phoenix oolong. 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.

Taste profile

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.

Infusion tips

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.

  1. Superb in every way

    When you are in a perfect space and require a perfect friend this has to be it. This is so refined that the do not disturb sign has to be on the world until every last drop is tasted. You and the eight immortals will become one.

  2. Best Baxian

    This is the best baxian I have ever tried regardless of price. I have searched around HK and Chaozhou to say that!!!!

  3. New batch

    Will there be a new batch I’m just wondering because Leo said bouquet dancong has a shorter shelf life and there was no spring batch this year.

  4. RE: New batch

    Hello Minh,
    Our tea master for Eight Immortals has a special way of curing the tea to make it last longer and improve with time. The tea is actually smoother now than when new.

    If yu want to wait till the new batch, it would be available mid to late May the earliest. However sometimes Leo would not buy a tea when he cannot find a good enough quality for that year.

  5. Good humble smell

    Very comfortable good smell. Not too much like fragrant flower. Humble like good Confucius teaching. Long lasting and good class taste. This tea make me happy.

  6. My friend recommend this tea to me and I really thank him. The tea gives me the impression as if eight immortals are gathered around a place and enjoying their lives

    • We have really enjoyed your comment of this one and tried visualise the same picture. Some of us said we should be that eight immortal fairies chilling out for a tea picnic in the park. 🙂

  7. One more review I’d like to write
    I drank other Eight Immortals Wudong from another shop, and I could feel that this Eight Immortals Wudong is in quite much high quality. Thank you for introducing me this tea

    • I am so glad that you said this. Every year we have to spend a lot of efforts managing our sources in order to make sure they deliver their best outputs. Phoenix oolongs are amongst the most difficult ones since they are so much in high demand and the annual yield of genuine ones is small. Furthermore, Eight Immortals is not an easy tea to process well.

  8. A bearer of of satisfaction and contentment in a cup, this BaXian is undoubtedly worthy of its namesake and high praise. Thank you for offering such an amazing tea!

    • Hey Chiam, I am glad you like this Baxian. It is one of my own favourites too.
