Phoenix Sweet Osmanthus, traditional flower scented oolong
Traditional basket oven scented
For those who prefer finer tea tastes on top of real flower fragrance in their scented teas, Phoenix Sweet Osmanthus is an ultimate choice. Freshly picked osmanthus flower buds are sprinkled onto a thin layer of Honey Orchid Phoenix oolong in a bamboo basket over low charcoal ash fire. The same way as this has been done for centuries. The result is a natural, sweet, sensually aromatic epicurean experience few other scented teas can compare.

Milan Xiang Dancong:The fine mastery that produces Tea Hong’s Honey Orchid has to be coupled with select first flush harvests from high grown tea bushes in order to deliver the kind of quality only a restricted circle of tea aficionados have known and kept to their secret. The overall production volume for such quality in the whole Phoenix region is only a few thousand kilos after all. Most will go to local elites, and the rest to the few hardcore Phoenix oolong fans that are also tea merchants, like us. Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Shèmen Dancong Double Baked, Phoenix dancong oolongHome, Tea, Oolongs, Fenghuang ( Phoenix ), Floral Aromas, Fuller Bodies, Neutral Energy
Rock tea of PhoenixDeep in Wudong, the most revered area for Fenhuang Dancong production, the village of Shèmen ( sheh-mehn ) is home to one of the most elusive traditional style oolongs. Here the Shè ( 畬 ) tribe settled a thousand years ago and began producing oolong to bake it in a way that was copied in Wuyishan a few hundred years later to produce Wuyi oolongs. Tea Hong’s double baked and matured Shèmen Dancong is our best attempt to reconstruct the same tea of the peace-loving and hard-working Shè people 10 centuries ago. This old style oolong gives a clear and most eloquent definition of the tea term yan-yun — music from the rock. The term has been mostly employed to describe better Wuyi oolongs yet it has never been more beautifully defined by this Phoenix tea. If you ever wonder about the relationship of the oolongs between the two regions, this may well be the link you are looking for. Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Oriental Beauty, deep oxidation Taiwan oolongTea, Oolongs, Taiwan, Lighter Aromas, Fuller Bodies, Neutral Energy
Dongfang MeirenTo experience why this unique Taiwan white tip oolong was nicknamed Oriental Beauty by Queen Elizabeth II, you have to taste the real thing. It is perhaps the most demanding tea to process well. Harvested only once a year in summer and after the young leaves are bitten by a kind of tiny leafhopper, genuine Dongfang Meiren can attain its special taste profile only after following the oolong processing routine modified especially for this tea. Tea Hong’s Phong-hong tè — the original name of Oriental Beauty — is a prime selection from the origin in Hsinchu, Taiwan. Net weight: 50 g ( 1.8 oz ) in Kraft-alu pack
Orchid Gratus, Phoenix dancong oolongHome, Tea, Oolongs, Fenghuang ( Phoenix ), Floral Aromas, Fuller Bodies, Neutral Energy
Wudong Xingren XiangFor people who like classic style Phoenix but desire something more mellow than Honey Orchid, Orchid Gratus offers a taste that is as full-bodied. It is balanced with as subtle a warm and slightly sweet aroma. Not only is this a great choice for the veteran tea connoisseur who seeks peace in the cup, but is also a bridge between softer oolongs and the more vibrant world of taste in Fenghuang Dancong. Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Sweet fragrance of fresh osmanthus on a foundation of fresh herbs and accents of tropical fruits. Lively, sweet, malty infusion accentuated with sharp bites of tangerine peel. Light tones of berries. Sweet aftertaste. Lingering waves of osmanthus after aroma.
To optimise the aromatic experience, adjust the tealeaves amount for a full taste but needing only a short steeping time. Try setting the first infusion at between one to two minutes for a two cup pot. Shorter for gongfu style quantity. The leaves can be repeatedly infused for many times.
