Feng Huang Dancong Gong Xiang Xue Pian 2021

"SNOWFLAKE" Chinese oolong tea

Feng Huang Dancong Gong Xiang Xue Pian 2021 Feng Huang Dancong Gong Xiang Xue Pian 2021 Feng Huang Dancong Gong Xiang Xue Pian 2021

In this tea, tea gourmets have been celebrating a unique masterpiece. A masterpiece that can be a little tricky.

Gong Xiang means "a unique fragrance, above all". It's one of the most fragrant and floral Dancong varietals, a first among equals in many senses.

The tea is very lightly roasted, which is easy to see if we take a moment and sniff the wet tea leaves. They steam that comforting nutty - toasty aroma.

The first couple of infusions are fresh and mild, but the aftertaste, which takes a few seconds to come forward is impressive already, strong and fruity, the taste of fresh, ripe black currants lingers in the mouth exceptionally long. The floral, fragrant notes, which this tea got its fame for, show themselves in the later infusions. While many Dancong teas hit their peak already at the first or second infusion, Gong Xiang takes its time, and is there around the 3rd or forth. And we need to be careful with it. While the bold, floral scent is easy to achieve, mastering the taste is rather a challenge. Short infusions are the best for this one. It is better to rinse it first to let the leaves open a little, and go for similarly short 3-4 infusions after. You can brew it longer then, the tea will go many many steeps. Gong Xiang might take more attention and a few attempts to brew it right, but the result is one of the most rewarding tea experiences.

The tea is from the winter batch, harvested in October, that's where the name Xue Pian (snowflake) comes from.

We recommend to brew this tea in a 3g/100ml ratio, but some tea connoisseurs prefer it stronger and add 6-7g tea leaves for 100ml water.

STEP 1) Warm your teapot. Pour boiling water into a gaiwan or teapot, let it sit for a little while, then discard all the water.
STEP 2) Fill your pot with tea leaves in a 3g/100ml ratio, pour boiling water on them and brew for 10-20 seconds.
STEP 3) Serve. Pour the tea into a pitcher, and then into cups.
STEP 4) Brew again.

❖ This tea is best with short infusions. After the first few infusions you can increase the steeping time (to about 35-40 seconds).
❖ Make sure to open the lid of the teapot between infusions, to prevent the leaves from cooking.
❖ This is how we recommend brewing this tea, but we all have our preferences, so try experimenting to find the way you like it the most.
