About Phoenix Black Tea:

The Phoenix mountains are known for their variety of Dancong ‘Single trunk’ oolongs. A Phoenix black tea is very unusual for the area. Our grower has been making this style for only a few seasons. The leaves are of the Mei Lan ‘Honey orchid’ plant varietal, know for its fragrant qualities. Long, twisted leaves are carefully processed with gentle rolling and iterative roastings.

Ingredients: Black tea leaves.

Flavor Profile:

Very smooth, dark cherry taste.
