ao fu hou tea

What is Feng Huang Dan Cong (Pheonix Wu Long?)

Fruity, floral, tannic, and super aromatic, Feng Huang Dan Cong (also known as Phoenix Oolong Tea) has pleasant and showy qualities unparalleled by any other kind of loose leaf tea. These qualities have led it to become one of the market's most popular Wu Longs (Oolong).

History of Ao Fu Hou

Origin: Dan Hu, Feng Huang Shan (Phoenix Mountain), Chao Zhou, Guang Dong Province, China (~500m elevation)

Ao Fu Hou is another example of the perplexing casual naming tradition for Dan Cong by the locals. It basically means tea trees behind a dip in the mountain, in the local dialect.

Sophisticated and Addictive

Ao Fu Hou is a highly addictive varietal with notes of butterscotch and raspberries. It has sophisticated fine tannins.

Tasting The 2022 Vintage
