The Phoenix Mountains of China have been renowned for centuries for their distinctive Dancong (single-grove) oolong teas. Most Dancong oolongs are named for the kind of flower fragrance that the tea leaves maintain after processing. Our Magnolia Blossom oolong tea is grown at the highest elevations of the Phoenix Mountains and exudes a naturally fragrant aroma of magnolia flowers and a nuanced sweet flavor that lingers. The leaves are artistically shaped into long and tightly twisted strands and then charcoal-wood fired in wicker baskets, resulting in the distinctive aroma and flavor that characterize each variety of Dancong oolong. We recommend brewing Gongfu style as this tea supports multiple steepings with each one bringing out new layers of flavor.
