Huangzhi Xiang Dancong:

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.

鳳凰單樅、2015烏崠宋種黃橘香(黃枝香)

Taste profile

Fresh, bright floral aroma with a distinctive touch of ripen tangerine and an accent of raw honey. Silky sweet infusion of a fine, lively body delicately balanced with the tingling bitterness of tangerine peel and tones of fresh herbs. Long, soft, fruity bittersweet aftertaste and after aroma.

Infusion tips

This tea is much better realized using the gaiwan in a gongfu approach. Do not use overly too much tealeaves so you can infuse for at least 20 seconds in the first round for the elegantly wonderful first impression. Try 6 g in a 160 ml.

* Starting from 2014, Tea Hong’s Song Cultivar has been significantly upgraded. Those who have tried our 2013 batches or before would definitely love this batch a lot more.

    喜出望外

    我以前以為自己飲咗咁多年功夫茶,有咩好野未試過﹗今次試宋種真係喜出望外。第一,呢隻茶層次多(不過都唔容易沖,我都反覆實驗過几種沖法,又用蓋碗又用茶壺。但係咁樣試吓都係茗茶既樂趣之一),味道清得黎回酣長。第二係佢「襟」飲,即係沖五、六泡都可以(我用7至8克茶葉),而且連續几日飲宋種都唔會覺得厭。咁計返條數其實都好抵飲。不過鍾意炭火味既人可能一開始個時唔係咁適應。但呢隻茶絶對係好野,應該試﹗要畀滿分﹗

    Special Tea

    A deep citrus flavor pervades the mouth that carries through for endless brews. Huigan is huge and long lasting. The tea has some power and quick infusions bring out its smoothness and good mouthfeel. This was a treat!

    excellent

    This beautiful dancong has what, to me, is the perfect balance of sweet and bitter, with an enticing mouth feel and a lingering, tongue coating taste. The citrus bite is very apparent and pleasing.
    Overall, this tea has wonderful qi, leaving my spirit feeling lively and my tongue satisfied

    Excellent tea

    果如所言,2014的宋種,確較往上幾年好飲、且更耐沖泡,沖至六七泡,後勁淩厲,餘香猶在。

    Perfume for the palate

    Oh, the excitement when the Tea Hong box arrives! Song Cultivar was the first to be sampled after the un-boxing of my second shipment. The dry leaves make music as they tinkle into the gaiwan, blooming into a mass of plump foliage when brewed. The tea is clear and golden brown but tastes like a gray, misty day by a crackling fire. Deep and slightly bitter, it leaves a citrus-like perfume lingering on your palate.
