Dan Cong is a very old tea which history record dates back to 900 years ago. The tea plants are believed to be a specimen of the Shui Xian strain that have been carefully selected to breed as Dan Cong's tree, which is a single trunk tree that rises tall and straight up, and with branches that open out like an umbrella. Feng Huang Dan Cong was also an Imperial tribute tea during the Song dynasty.

Other names:

Feng Huang Select, Phoenix Select


The dried tea leaves of Feng Huang Dan Cong are very aromatic even before they are steeped. The infusion yields a beverage that is sweet with a peachy flavor reminiscent of a popular fruit in China called longan.


Slightly curled, long golden-brown tea leaves.


Feng Huang Shan, Guangdong Province, China

Harvest Period:

Winter 2012

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Fill the teapot 1/2 to 3/4 full with tea leaves, or 3 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using purple clay. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (207°F) to 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can purple clay or porcelain tea ware.

A bit difficult to get the best out of this one, but when I'm successful, it has a very nice peachy or even longan-like fruitiness to it with just a hint of astringency.

Nice tea for the price. But not extraordinary flavour. Maybe its because i tried Tie Guan Yin first.

Excellent, Excellent! This latest batch of Fung Huang DC comes with a different lot number, yet retains the same high quality taste as the last lot. Hot water and short steepings will yield many infusions of this DC, each having its own enjoyable taste characteristic. It's a challenge to get the right quantity of leaf in your strainer, due to its long, twisted style. I've found more is better, due to short steep times. The tea will "pay you back" on the other end with more tasty infusions. Enjoy!

Wow and again wow! I did not expect this. The first time I tried FenHuang. What a beautiful aroma and flavor and so much more surprising since the dry leaves give no indication what is hidden inside unlike Mi Lan where when opening the tea container one can smell the tea. And more yet, I got a good 10+ infusions, had to split it over 2 days since alone I can drink only so much.

Very good tea for the price. After 3+ infusions, it still tastes excellent. Peachy taste, will definitely try more Dan Cong in the future.

I really like all the Dan Congs, but I think I liked this one the most (which isnt saying a whole lot since theyre all great). Dan Congs are interesting right off the bat with them being uncurled, full leaves. And This one, while it does tend to have a strange, slightly bitter back-end, it has a nice fruity-like taste to it. Good stuff.

I had placed an order for Feng Huang Dan Cong, but by mistake ChineseTeaArt sent me a package of Song Zhong Dan Cong. I did not complain since I received the higher grade of tea! So this review will be for Song Zhong Dan Cong, which is wonderful. The tea has a lovely fruity smell and taste. It almost has a "tartness" to it. It reminds me of lychees. SZDC is an extremely high quality tea. Sorry that the excellent rating here will be for SZDC and not for FHDC, which I have yet to try. Try SZDC, if you can -- you will not be disappointed.

On hot day, I cold brew it and found it satisfying rather than satisfactory as a rating which often is viewed in relation to its price, the leaf, the processing technique displayed and individual taste. Others, who are better informed in the tasting of the leaf is of course the better source for anyone seeking a competitive comparative.

This is the 4th time I have bought Feng Huang, my favourite Dan Cong Oolong. I was a little disappointed in again not finding this one to taste anything like the 1st one I purchased. However in itself this is a particularly lovely tea. The leaves themselves have the most delicious burnt, creamy caramel, toffee aroma. The tea itself has a lovely balance of the above flavours but is characterised by a very appealing creamy-ness which makes this a perfect afternoon Oolong. Over all a very nice tea and one which I would recommend although it is a little too similar to Song Zhong Dang Cong and is (for me) missing the green fresh-ness which my 1st ever taste of Feng Huang made it a particular favourite

I'm not sure what to think about this tea, so I will focus on the description given on this site for it and elaborate on those points. First, it may bit hard to notice from the single picture posted for the tea, but the dry leaves are stunning. Theyre multi hued, with the stems standing out in light yellow, the leaves a more subdued green, and some of the tips a dark crimson. Second, the description on the site claims that these leaves are fragrant even before being steeped. Perhaps they are. Personally, I did not find a very noteworthy aroma, especially when compared to, say, a green Tie Guan Yin. Once steeped, the leaves indeed give off a sweet, fruity smell. The same can be said of the liquid -- sweet but with an astringent bite to it. It may take some imagination, however, to be able to attribute either the smell or taste to a longan. Last note on this tea is to not use boiling water to steep it. Although this tea may have bifurcated off a Shui Xian strand, it is very little like i

A really nice aroma, reminiscent of osmanthus flower. Almost fruity but not too. And very good value for the price. Not my favorite oolong but I do drink it regularly.
