Ba Xian (Eight Immortals)
Feng Huang Shan
Named after eight saint like figures in Chinese mythology, Ba Xian is a Phoenix wu long known for its citrusy flavor.
We currently hold Ba Xians from two locations, Feng Xi and Wu Dong. Wu Dong is the most sought after peak in Feng Huang. It produces some of the best Phoenix wu longs. The Feng Xi has a bolder and stronger flavor, but the Wu Dong is more refined and complex. A customer one described the difference as one tea being an athlete, the other a scholar.
In her last trip to China Tea Drunk owner, Shunan Teng, filmed the farms making a true batch of dan cong (single tree) Ba Xian. See the careful work that goes into producing the top Feng Huang wu long at our video page.
