Dancong Aria tea in bulk available for wholesale. Our Phoenix Dancong is an oolong from Phoenix Mountain, China. These very special tea plants have been allowed to grow unpruned into large ancient trees and bushes, yielding exquisite, single bush harvests The one we have chosen intrigued us with its hypnotic orchid notes and lingering honey sweetness. A legendary tea experience we are pleased to offer. Grown at approximately 1,000 meters.
This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 195° for 3-5 minutes.
Dancong tea trees are not pruned to waist-level bushes but are grown into full-sized trees, often 30 ft. high. Some are 60-years-old. Our selection is from the Guangdong province, grown at 1000 meters’ elevation on the Phoenix Mountains. Teas from such older, unpruned trees result in leaves with intense flavor and fragrance redolent of orchids which is enhanced when brewed gong fu style to capture the taste and fragrance as the expressive leaves open up in the water. Use a moderately low water temperature for our Dancong Aria (Mi Lan Xiang) to enjoy the long finish and multiple deep-flavored infusions.

How long have you been growing tea?
“More than 30 years.”
What got you started in the Tea industry?
“Our family have dealed with tea planting for several generations. When I was a little boy, I have already worked with my parents for planting tea and making teas.”
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
“Normally I get up at 6am. I will first have several cup of dancong with little breakfast. Then I will go to climb the mountain. It takes me one to two hours to climb the mountain. Picking up tea leaves and making teas by primary steps are my main job. It takes time to pick up the tea leaves because our tea trees are all around the mountain. After picking I will send the fresh tea leaves to the primary factory for simple making. Everyday I work like this for about 18 hours.”
