“This is my first expedition into red tea and so far I love it. I am personally not noticing a very strong citrus flavour but the hints are there. It is quite smooth and delicious.”

Mr. Huang's Phoenix Dancong

Our Phoenix Dan Cong is produced by Mr Huang, a farmer with a vision that embraces both his traditional roots and a contemporary approach to quality control and standards. He founded his farm in 2008, but already his success is enviable: voted Best In Category two years running at the International Tea Fair in Hong Kong, his teas have also won awards in Macao and on the mainland.

Huang's tea garden is located at an altitude of 600m on Dazhi mountain, which belongs to the Fenghuang mountain range. The plantation spans a total area of 1000 mu. He produces tea only from their own gardens and the focus on high quality standards during cultivation and production has earned him an export licence and "Green Product" certification.
