Fenghuang Dancong Tea, also known as Eastern Red, typically comes from the province of Guangdong on Phoenix Mountain, the highest peak in eastern Guangdong. Dancong tea has a 900-year history. It is believed to be the tea used for Imperial tributes during the Song Dynasty. The ancient process for preparing it remains the same today. Artisans create this tea by firing thin, long leaves until they change into brownish red leaves. Rinsing the leaves revives them and releases their signature fragrance.
