Xuepian Lanhua Xiang:

Finer winter Phoenix oolongs have always been sought after for their unforgettable natural bouquet fragrances. To us, an aroma of a premium tea has to be complete with a winning taste profile. It has taken us over a decade to fine tune the mastery of the processing of the choicest harvest to attain a result we can be proud of. Presenting Tea Hong’s very own Snow Orchid, the roundest, smoothest, and by far the most seductively fragrant oolong ever known. It is our luscious indulgence secretly from Nature.

鳳凰冬茶、雪片蘭花香

Taste profile

Perfumy, sweet, full-bodied bouquet with a rich, creamy undertone. Velvety, sweet, bright infusion carried by a buttery smooth body. Tangy bites of tangerine peels and slight accents of pears and apples. Refreshing, lingering aftertaste of mouth-watering sweetness and bloomy aroma.


Infusion tips

As with all bouquet Phoenixes, use more leaves and shorter time for maximum enjoyment. This particular selection is especially heightened with near boiling water and shorter time. The 6g to 160 ml proportion is great with infusion length ranging from 20 sec to 1 minute, dependent on your preference. If, however, you need to serve it using a bigger pot, follow the 1g to 100 ml water rule (even less if you are using 700 ml capacity or more) but make sure the pot is very well preheated. Do not infuse for longer than 6 minutes for intact of the taste profile.

Storage tips

This tea has been cold-stored until shipping. While it is perfectly alright to let it stay in room temperature for a couple of months, its maximum aroma and taste profile decrease upon extended shelving in room temperature. If you do not plan to consume the pack soon, it is better to store it in the fridge, sealed and better yet in a ziploc bag. To return the leaves to room temperature, take the pack out at least 2 hours before opening. This is key to subsequent storage and maximum infusion results.

Chinese notes

雪片名稱的由來:

除了幾個山峰以外,潮汕鳳凰山一帶冬天並不經常下雪,然而上佳的冬茶棌摘時間為廿四節氣中的小雪及之前幾天,故當地人泛稱鳳凰單欉冬茶為雪片。

    ANOTHER POWERHOUSE

    My, my, this tea is full of flavor. Dry leaf aroma of melon. Pale yellow liquor with smooth, floral bouqet that fill the mouth. Huigan is big and long. Tremendous flavor rests on the tongue. Thick mouthfeel. This could be somewhat over the top, and perhaps less leaf should be used unless you are looking for a powerhouse of a perfumed Dancong. Many, many, brews. Quite enjoyable. This is the best selection of Dancong from any dealer I know in Asia.

    OMG!!!!!

    Until now I have never known what they mean by fine tea! I don’t know how to write such flowery reviews but I have to tell you that this tea really is something big for me. It’s a total knock out! If this is what tea really is, all the others I have drunk were nothing! I can tell you that. Now I can understand why some tea here cost more. Such wonderful aroma, such taste, such silkiness. I am totally hooked.

    Aptly named

    I imagine if one picks a lovely, rare orchid out of the snow, this tea exactly mirrors that taste. Exotic florals finished by the sensation of a cool breeze circulating your olfactory system. Uplifting.
