From Zhao Zhou

Green dancong is one of our most fragrant teas. Due to the special drying process that involves both heating and cooling, the leaves can keep their original fragrance: orchid, lily, and lilac. This overwhelming flower bouquet, is accompanied by the scent of fresh green grass. The aftertaste is mild and buttery with some refreshing, vivid buzz.

The well-known phoenix oolongs are famous for their impressive fragrance and long-lasting, round, creamy flavour.

The term dancong (单枞) originally meant phoenix teas all picked from one tree. In recent times though it has become a generic term for all Phoenix Mountain (凤凰山, Fenghuang) oolongs. The dancongs’ name often refers to a certain scent/savour (e.g. milan xian, honey-orchid fragrance).

Preparing Instructions:

Quantity: 5-6 gramm per 150 ml.
Water temperature: 85ºC. From fresh, spring water or filtered water.
Brewing time: 7-10…seconds
Infusions: 6-7

I expected a nuclear green floral and soapy Chou Chi before I bought it. Their description was upfront about the tea’s headiness: “Green dancong is one of our most fragrant teas. Due to the special drying process that involves both heating and cooling, the leaves can keep their original fragrance: orchid, lily, and lilac. This overwhelming flower bouquet, is accompanied by the scent of fresh green grass. The aftertaste is mild and buttery with some refreshing, vivid buzz.”

Again, their description and steeping methods were reliable as ever; but it was not overwhelming and soapy at all. It was subtle and refined like every tea, and immensely creamy. It was green, but again, creamy florals of orchid, lilac and lily dominated the tea without ever being astringent or bitter in the least. The lilac, and MAYBE vanilla notes reminded me more of a high grade Baozhong than a TieGuanYin like the other green dancongs I’ve had, which was so very welcomed.

It had some durability at seven steeps, so it was medium in strength. This is a good tea if you like things on the lighter end of oolongs, and definitely better than other green dancongs I’ve had.
