Phoenix Oolong 2019

Harvested: May 2019 Guangdong, China

Phoenix Oolong or Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong is the most delightful Oolong in our collection.

The leaves are long and slender, gently curled and a wonderful mix of colours from dark reds to deep browns.

The aroma promises something special and the lightest of infusions delivers an amazing cup full of the richness of honey and delicate sweetness of Orchids and Lychee.

If there is one tea you should try it is this one.... it will change the way you think about tea!

NOTE: Some product sizes in a caddy (tin) can have a personalised label - lookout out for sizes marked in the pricing panel.

Health Benefits

Oolong teas are considered great digestive teas by the Chinese.

Phoenix Oolong is a particularly nice after dinner tea.

Brewing

1-2 heaped teaspoons (one big pinch) per cup and add water that is just off the boil, at around 90 degrees. Infuse for 2 minutes.

To really experience the tea, use just enough water for very small cup pour off the first infusion after around 30 seconds, the second leave for 45, the third for 1 minute and so on. You will then experience the journey through the sweetness of honey and into the floral orchid notes the tea begins to offer. Continue like this until you are not happy with the flavour.
