The encounter between people depends on a bit of fate. The encounter between people and tea is also a kind of fate. Life is a wandering journey.
Every cup of tea is a beautiful accident. Today, Tongxinshe Teahouse shares a special Guangdong oolong tea, Phoenix Dancong "Mountain Gate" Phoenix dancong oolong.

In the traditional concept of Chaozhou people, tea, as a necessities of life, has always been as important as rice to fill the stomach, and Shan Cong can be said to be the representative of Chaozhou tea culture. Fenghuang Town, Chaozhou City is the main source of oolong tea in Guangdong Province. One of the producing areas, has a long history of tea production.
Mountain Gate is a small village gate in Phoenix Mountain. Because "Che" is the same as "city" in Chaozhou language, it is also called the city gate. There is a phoenix single clump mother tree growing here. If it guards the gate of the mountain, people call it "Chemen species". Its leaves are huge and made into a single cluster, which is called "Chemen Dancong Tea", also called "Chengmen Dancong Tea".
Today's Fenghuang Dancong Chemen is produced in the core mountain area of Fenghuang Dancong - the ancient tea garden of Wudao in Fenghuang Town, which is about 1100 meters above sea level. Chemen Dancong tea with unique mountain flavor, when the tea is picked, it is plucked by ramets. When the new tea buds germinate to a small open face (that is, there are resident buds), the tea is picked by horse riding according to the standard of one bud and two leaves. Harvest by hand, put it lightly in the tea pot, and strictly abide by the "three no-picking" guidelines of no picking when the sun is strong, no picking on rainy days, and no picking on foggy water. Generally, it is mined in the afternoon, processed that night, and made into tea. All at night. After drying, drying, fixing, rolling, baking and other processes, it took more than 10 hours to form the initial tea. Wang Run is bright.
The color of the soup is clear yellow and bright, the flower fragrance of the cup noodles is long and elegant, fresh and refreshing, the tea soup is light and lively, the sweet water is prominent, soft and pure, the cup noodles are fragrant, like gardenia, pomelo, and ginger flower fragrance, long and elegant, fresh and refreshing.
Beautifully processed leaves with a subtle floral aroma that gradually opens up with each subsequent brew. Some floral with ginger on the palate, but not in an overpowering way. Great longevity and warm, comfortable feeling. This is a fantastic high mountain Dan Cong that I would heartily recommend.
