Many tea lovers have heard of Oolong Tea, but not many of them have ever heard of the sub-category – “Guangdong style Oolong”.
As a neighbor of Fujiang Province (the main Oolong tea producing region), Guangdong Province has preserved its own Oolong tea cultural as well as its most famous tea – “Phoenix Dan Cong”. In fact, the “Gong Fu” tea style is originated from the Guangdong tea appreciation style. Due to the limited production of the “Phoenix Dan Cong”, it becomes the “lily in the hidden valley”.
The “Phoenix Dan Cong” or “Phoenix Single Cluster” is tea plucked from a single tea bush. Almost all Phoenix Dan Cong is from the one cultivar named “Narcissus”. Throughout the generations of cultivation, great variations of this cultivar have been identified and preserved, which gave birth to as many as over 80 aromas of tea varieties within the “Phoenix Dan Cong”.
During this workshop, the two most representative tea varieties – “Mi Lan” (Honey Orchid”) and “Duck poop” teas to introduce you this rare Oolong tea sub-category.
