About Premium Phoenix Dan Cong Dong Fang Hong

This premium grade Phoenix Dan Cong comes from the Wu Dong Village, Chao Zhou City, Guang Dong City. In 1995, this aromatic Phoenix Dan Cong was dedicated to Chairman Mao, the former president of China. He really loved it and sent back a thanks note after trying the tea. This tea has then been called ‘Dong Fang Hong’, the literal translation of which is ‘The Red in the East’, and with a free translation of ‘hope’ as Chairman Mao is the one who save thousands of millions of people from a miserable life and lead them to the light.

Wu Dong Village, where the sea level is between 1000 and 1200 metres, is the hometown of high-quality Phoenix Dan Cong. Phoenix Dan Cong produced here is extremely mellow and has a unique high mountain charm. This Phoenix Dan Cong Dong Fang Hong belongs to the yellow gardenia fragrance type. However, it has a much mellower taste and richer combined aroma than the ordinary Phoenix Dan Cong yellow gardenia flavour. Its aroma is full of impressiveness and enchantment.

Cultivar and Picking

Picking Tea

The name ‘Dan Cong’ means ‘single shrub of tea cultivars’. It is selected from the high-quality Phoenix Shuixuan Species Group, cultivated and picked individually. There are many sub-cultivars under the group of the Phoenix Shuixian cultivars, and each individual shrub has its own characteristic in terms of the tea leaves and taste.

Based on the different quality of the raw materials generated from Phoenix Shuixuan Species Group and the different levels of production processes, the quality of its sub-cultivars, from high to low, can be sorted as Phoenix Dan Cong, Phoenix Lang Cai, and Phoenix Shuixian. In simple words, Phoenix Dan Cong is the upgraded version of Phoenix Shuixian.

Phoenix Dan Cong has dozens of strains and types. According to the introduction of Chaozhou Phoenix tea tree resources and documentation, Phoenix tea has 79 different natural flower flavours, 12 natural fruit aromas, and 16 different fragrances.

Phoenix Dan Cong is picked before or after the Pure Brightness (before and after April 4th, 5th, or 6th), once per year.
