Phoenix Oolong Red
$21.00 – $66.00 — available on subscription
Many Oolongs age very well and improve in flavor and color over time. This tea has been produced using a combination of oolong and black tea techniques. With careful aging, it has become smoother in texture and its honey and floral notes have further developed. We gave this a light roasting to bring out subtler flavors. This is a special tea that’s unlike any other Oolong. A chilled version of this tea is unforgettable under the hot summer sun!
Guangdong, China: The Eastern province of Guangdong, once known as Canton, is a subtropical region, strongly influenced from the moist air of the South China Sea. Here oolong, black, puerh and green teas are grown. Among Guangdong teas, oolong from Wu Dong in the Feng Huang Shan (Phoenix Mountain) area is most highly regarded.
We suggest using 3-5 grams of tea in approximately 6-8 oz of water. Use just below boiling water for quick 1 minute steepings until you find your own preference. Good water is essential to success in steeping good tea, so please remember to start with the best water available to you. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
