SUMMARY

Type: Red (Black) Tea
Origin: Phoenix Village, Chaozhou, Guangdong province, China

The area around Chaozhou city is famous for producing Dancong tea, a variety of Oolong that has approximately 18 different aroma sub-varieties, each with its own unique flavour and characteristics.

This particular Dancong tea is quite special. Made from leaves destined to become an Oolong tea, the Lin family have processed it and turned it into a red (black) tea.
