This is a high quality  handmade oolong from China. Also known as Phoenix bird oolong. Dan Cong is often  translated as "Single Strain," named after tea bushes hundreds of years ago in  which each bush produced a uniquely flavored tea. Fenghuang Dancong is a select  oolong tea from Guangdong province and was a tribute tea in the Song Dynasty.  The leaves are harvested from a strain of trees that have been selected for  careful breeding as straight trunk trees. These trees have a single trunk that  rises straight up and the branches form an umbrella, making harvesting the  leaves particularly difficult. Pickers use tall ladders or must climb the trees  to harvest the long leaves.
This strain is light and  slightly astringent, with a hint of tropical fruit. This tea absolute delight,  from the lovely black leaves, to the complex aroma of the infusion which is a  lovely golden yellow liquor, with a complex delicate woody, fruity taste.  According to its different flavours, Dan Cong teas have been divided into many  types, such as Zhi Orchid, Osmanthus, Yulan, Almond, Cinnamon, Ginger Flower,  Jasmine, Honey Orchid, Huangzhi, Grapefruit, etc.. Colony, Egiht Immortals,  Oriental Red, Song, City-wall are considered as high grade  products.
The aromatic, hearty oolong  has a clear orange-brown hue in the cup. The leaves reveal their oolong characteristics during infusion and turn definitively green in the center and  red-brown on the edges. The second infusion is considered by many to be the  best, with a desirerable, lingering aftertaste.
