It opens with a stunning floral aroma with a hint of honeysuckle accompanied by a swing of bittersweet, and gradually transitions into more complex flavor with an aromatic hint of tuberose. It leaves a strong floral scent at the end. Its rich caffeine and taste also makes a perfect coffee substitution!
Ye Lai Xiang or Tuberose Aroma is one of Phoenix Dan Cong’s most recognized aromas for its memorable floral note. From the coastal area in Canton province, Phoenix Mountain possesses mineral-rich soil and is constantly surrounded by mists and fog, covered by wild tea tress and tea farms, as well as the folklore of the Phoenix Dan Cong Tea. Many wild tea trees are at least 100 to 200 years old. It’s a special type of Oolong treasured for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma, and is also believed to be the ancestor of all Oolong teas. Well-known for its ten aromatic categories, it delivers rich and complex flavor.
Local tea scholars and connoisseurs from China study and try to organize these all-natural teas into hundreds aromatic subgroups. Phoenix Dan Cong’s aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated, artisan crafted, and each aroma comes from the tea plant’s natural aromatic compound.

Gai Wan or ceramic pot

95 C / 205 F

Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):
Rinse leaves and discard the first infusion

Repeat for another 10+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 10 seconds with each additional infusion
We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
