Phoenix Mountain Oolong, from Phoenix Mtn in Guangdong province, is composed of dark, long, sinewy leaves. When steeped, this oolong has tremendous floral aroma and a complex flavor with sweet, buttery, fruity (apple) notes and a wonderful silky/creamy texture. One of the best teas of the year. Very limited production.
