While there are an overwhelming number of Phoenix oolong varietals, each with their own aromatic profile, Song Zhong ranks among our very favorites. Song Zhong is a naturally occurring varietal that has been around since at least the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279 AD).
Dancongs generally are extremely aromatic. Our Song Zhong Dancong is an intense fruit and flower affair, almost like a nectar, with prominent notes of just ripe nectarine and peach. It has a beautiful sweetness with a nice, round body and a slightly woodsy quality.
