Feng Huang Dan Cong was also an Imperial tribute tea during the Song dynasty. Taste: The dried tea leaves of Feng Huang Dan Cong are very aromatic even before they are steeped. The infusion yields a beverage that is sweet with a peachy flavor reminiscent of a popular fruit in China called longan. Appearance: Slightly curled, long golden-brown tea leaves. Flavors: Sweet Peach, Orchid,Ginger Taste: Unlike normal Jade Tie Guan Yin, the dried tea leaves have very subtle fragrance. Yet, once steeped, the lovely orchid-like fragrance fills the air.
