Hand-crafted "Phoenix Bird Oolongs" - Sampler


Sample delicious, handmade, rare & artisan Dan Cong style Oolongs.  Long favored as "tribute teas" by emperors, these 3 teas were grown on small farms in the Yellow Mountains, of the Fenghuang area, Guangdong Province.  Plucked and crafted from select local varietals, these lots offer a range of aromas and flavors that will provide a welcome introduction to this style of world class Chinese Oolongs.  Each is made to a different firing process and you will experience in the  range of flavors - from aromatic and ambrosial to a higher fire, more "almond" or toasty flavor.  Each lot infuses to a rich cup of Oolong tea.  Our sampler includes:

  • Lone Bush "Wu Dong Dan Cong".  Made with the famous "Chao An" varietal.  Single-origin, handmade, this lot is distinguished by the farmer's high-fire process which yields a roasted taste.  Taste has hints of almonds and a sweet lingering finish. 1 oz.
  • Gardenia Fragrance "Huang Zhi Xiang".  Sweet aroma, floral with a tangy note underneath.  Finish blends the two notes reflecting its complexity.  Taste is lingering and refreshing.  1 oz.
  • Yellow Fragrance "Huang Xiang".  Unusually large leaf harvested from an old tree.  Medium fire, main note is sweet nectar that will cover & delight the palate.  The finish will linger. 1 oz. 


We have additional lots of rare Phoenix Bird Oolongs that we offer as our "Private Reserve" Oolongs that are not listed herein. Please refer to our Oolong page for a complete listing.   Please note, in the event any of the lots listed herein our sampler sell out, we will replace that lot with a comparable handmade Phoenix Bird Oolong.  Or call us at 415 458 8624 to inquire as to other available rare Phoenix Bird lots.

    I am greatly enjoying all three teas. The gardenia fragrance phoenix definitely has the most depth of flavor. By far my favorite. The lone bush and yellow fragrance are more subtle but also very tasty. Thanks!
