Although the name rougui is the same as that variety from Wuyi, this tea is from a pure breed Fenghuang Dancong Shuixian cultivar. Sexual propagation of tea trees does give happy surprises and this is an example of it. Discovered and isolated in 1970 by a horticulturalist Mr Wei and has maintained a low profile to avoid unneeded trouble during the height of Cultural Revolution, the cultivar Fenghuang Rougui Xiang Dancongis only gradually picking up attention recently. Not all farmers are doing it right. It is a slow growing tea and only one harvest per year. We think every leaf is worth the search.
Buttery sweet, round fragrance with accents of cinnamon, beetroot sugar and shortbread on a bouquet overtone. Creamy, sweet, round body enlivened with sparks of kumquat and light accents of fresh mint. High notes of fresh ginseng with persistent undertone of cinnamon. Soft, yet long-lasting sweet aftertaste from front upper palate to under the throat, continued to be accented with kumquat, fresh ginseng and cinnamon.
If you prefer a soft, sweet tea with a comfortable yet characteristic fine tea, infuse at slightly above 90°C. However, if you want enough high pitch to really ring the accents in the taste profile, use water slightly below boiling point but add it in a small stream circling round the ball of tealeaves, never hit the middle, or you lose the completeness of the wonderful uniqueness of this tea. Always preheat your vessels.
White Peony Fuding is a traditional fine quality Bai Mudan from the origin of Fuding. It is a preferred daily tea for its light; sweet, floral and refreshing taste. Others drink it for the health benefits of a fine white tea. Many teashops offer this as the best white tea. We think it is best for the price.
Through years of researches a fine cultivar carrying the best traits of all the finest Wuyi natural cultivars is now mature and producing. Introducing Tea Hong’s Sacred Lily. Perhaps the most beautiful of all Wuyi oolongs. Grown deep in the steep mountains away from the touristy spots and masterfully processed for subtlety, complexity, and smoothness in taste. A tea that no true oolong connoisseur should miss.
The intense and unique bouquety perfume of Tea Hong’s Tieguanyin Floral comes from bioactive substances formed naturally upon proper processing of the young leaves from the Tieguanyin cultivar. Enjoy also its velvety texture and smooth taste upon stronger brewing, when you can steal a few minutes away from the hectics of the day to focus on preparing a nice little cup (or two) for drifting away. Only first flush from young bushes is used for this level of gastronomic excellence.
Song pedigree tea cultivar Huangzhi Xiang distinguishes itself from others of the same name not only by its living ancestor that has been carbon-dated back to the 13th century (late Song), but also by the elegantly complex taste and aroma of the tea it yields. That is why it is the most revered of all Phoenix oolong in its own origin and at the nearby Gongfu Tea Capital of the World — Chaozhou.
