Dancong ,one of the famoue Oolong tea in China ,growing in the Chaozhou city Feng huang town Feng huang Moutian . The most famouse growing location of Dancong is Wudong village located about 1200m .There are many ancient tea gardens there .
Chazohou is the birth of the Kongfu cha .All the people there drink tea from old time to now .MY husband told me: They call tea as "tea rice 茶米” .It means tea is as important as rice in their daily life ,it is a necessarity .A family with 3 people ,one month at least 500g tea . Most of the dancong tea from the Phoenix moutain was consumed by local Chao zhou people.
For the tea farmers in Phoenix moutian ,they do not so worry about the selling ,the well-crafted tea really have good market now.In China more and more personal drinkers come to farmers directly ,most of them would like to spend 300usd on 500g good quality tea ,and do not like pay 300usd on 2kg so so tea .
And the price of dancong goes up sharply .Espeical in Wudong village ,the tea price is like the price of wuyi in zheng yan locaiton and the Puer in Lao banzhang village .
Of course ,it does not mean all the tea from the Wudong village is exteremly good quality . Sourcing the suitable tea is very important .Suitable for your taste ,and suitable for your pocket.
Most of th tea bushes in Lingtou are no like the bushes in Phoenix moutain ,,they are also tall ,but still no need ladder but a stool is really needed .
because of special soil in Lingtou ,the baiye of Lingtou with its special feature .

Many tea friends ask me about the wuyi rock tea Charcoal fire baking .Some people never saw that before ,through the video looking, they still know nothing about that. So send some pics in my baking room.
Images have descriptive captions about the steps:
Tea baking is not just simply putting the basket on the fires and waiting the time .We need the tasting the tea each 1-2 hours to see how is the brewed leaves color changing and tea soup changing, and each half to 1 hour we need to turn them one time .For the tea baking, there is no a booking which we can cop , they are all the experience from practice .
Wuyi rock tea in the first year is changing all the time, can be better also can be worse .Tasting Maocha is very easily for us to know its essence. Understand the characteristics of the tea, like advantages and deficiency. So later we can bake the tea according to its features, can be lightly-roasted, or highly-roasted. Of course we also bake the tea according to the our clients' styles.
