Dong Fang means Eastern direction and Hong means red in Chinese. The red implies Communism in China. This tea used to be a tribute tea to the Chairman Mao. Tea is produced from the single and identical tea tree. The production quantity from a single tree is extremely limited; only 1 to 1.5kg is available in a year.
The meaning of single and identical tree is that individual tea tree is protected in the village. Some of trees are even fenced. Sometimes you may see some precious tea tree in Wuyi mountain that is protected and surrounded with fence. This is the tea in the same category. Usually those protected tea in Wuyi mountain is unimaginably expensive. Good news is that single and identical tea in Phoenix Mountain is not as expensive as those in Wuyi mountain. It is a tea of higher price but still realistic.
This tea gives a fresh honey-like flavor like nectar. Some said its flavor is like sugar cane. The size of leaf is slimmer and smaller than ordinary Phoenix teas. It appears more like a black tea. The dry tea leaf gives aroma like Delaware grape. Once tea is made, it gives much sweeter aroma and flavor goes deep down until you feel it's like reaching to our chest. If you drink a few cups, you feel very warm and relax. Thanks to the high quality, you can easily brew more than 20 infusions using the same tea leaves. If not, please upgrade your tea ware.
