“The east is red”, this phrase is a famous poetical allusion to the crimson color of the chinese sunrise, however in more modern times this phrase took on a distinctly communist tone. For this reason, when Chairman Mao traveled through Chao Zhou at the foot of the phoenix mountain in the 1970’s, he was presented with Dong Fang Hong as a gift. The tea is currently the rarest and most valuable Phoenix Mountain Single Bush Oolong that we source. Its strawberry-blonde liqour is complimented by a sweet berry-syrup nose with hints of cacao, hazelnut oil, pecan and shell of walnut. Flavors of apricot browned browned butter abound, accented by a strong, uplifting magic-carpet qi.
