Phoenix - Green 50g 凤凰山绿茶

Feng Huang Shan Lo Cha

In Stock

Wu Dong Collective, Feng Huang Shan, Chao'an Guangdong, China

In an industrious attempt to create their own take on the export-popular green Tie Guan Yin, the growers in the collective decided to “kill green” earlier than their usual phoenix oolong styles. Whilst the purpose was shrewd, the result itself was a pleasant surprise. It did not necessarily replicate the osmanthus florals typical of an iron goddess but retained the phoenix cultivar's usual orchid aroma. Being non-oxidised added a rawness of young bok choy - this, together with the aforementioned could trick the mind into thinking it a relative of the Anxi classic. Regardless, it should be tasted and classified for its own uniqueness. A new breed of green tea coming at you Chaozhou style - a decent complement to the native subtle food palate.
