One Bush (Phoenix Bird Dan Cong Oolong)
Classed as a single-trunk oolong, the tea leaves are harvested from trees that have been cultivated for years to reach this shape and unusual quality. This is a famous tea grown in the Feng Huang area in the Phoenix Mountains of Guangdong Province. Made of long, thin leaves crafted by artisans, then high-fired to a deep brown-red leaf color in wicker baskets over wood charcoal, the taste is toasty, full of aroma and fruity notes. This tea is a real treat as it will unleash a wealth of nectar-like tastes and provide multiple steeps.

Supporting adults with disabilities
Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.

The Silk Road Teas Story
We buy our Dan Cong oolongs from a school teacher. His family is involved in all aspects of its production. He calls regularly to check in and say hello.
While no longer high-production trees, the harvest is long on flavor and highly satisfying.
