Product Overview

Ji Long Kan means chicken coop. This tea gets its name from the shape of the mother tree Ji Long Kan looks like a chicken cage of the Chazhou style. In the Chaozhou dialect, the chicken cage is called Ji Long Kan. Ji Long Kan is harvested from 300 hundred-year-old, wild-grown tea trees in the Phoenix Mountain appellation of Guangdong, China. The deep roots of these ancient plants are enveloped by mineral-rich, volcanic soil that can only be found at great depths, which translates into more phytonutrients and flavor in their leaves.

Ji Long Kan is one famous type of Feng Huang Dan Cong Oolong Tea. It belongs to the Zhi Lan Xiang family. The mother tree of Ji Long Kan grows in the Zhong Ping Village of Fengxi, and the altitude is 831m. The tree is 4.87m in height and has a coverage of around 20 square meters. The age of the tree is around 300 years. It is the oldest tea tree so far identified in Wudong Mountain. The cultivar Ji Long Kan was naturally evolved and bred from the old Feng Huang Shui Xian cultivar resource. Now the clone breeding of Ji Long Kan has widely planted in the Wudong Mountian with altitudes above 600m.

The tea leaves are large and stalky. The color is dark brown with a slight hint of red. Once brewed, the liquid is a clear golden color. The aroma evokes the fragrance of orchids. This tea is certainly suggestive of the orchid flowers, as well as other fruity notes, like passion fruit, and baked berries. It is also buttery, smooth and sweet. The taste and texture are earthy and smooth.

Brewing Guide: Brew it in a gaiwan or in a Yixing teapot. Preheat vessel and cups with near boiling water (85-95°C or 185-200°F). Fill 1/3 to 1/2 of the volume with tea and add water and push off the bubbles with the lid as you cover and pour out this wash. Add more water, cover and infuse for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on taste. Pour tea into preheated cups and serve. Infusion can be repeated four or more times, increasing the infusion time as necessary.
