EIGHT IMMORTALS

£32.99

Eight Immortals is a rare Dan Cong oolong tea from Phoenix Mountain in Guangdong Province, China. This lightly roasted tea has notes of tangerine, mango, ginger and sweet baking spices.

Pairs well with soft cheeses or spiced dishes such as harissa roasted squash

Gift box included

The tea is grown on Phoenix Mountain which is celebrated for its mineral-rich soils, foggy climate and rocky landscape. While most teas are picked from small bushes, Dan Cong tea trees can grow to heights of three metres or more, making them far harder to harvest but yield incredibly high quality leaves.

This particular Eight Immortals tea is from trees that are between 20-30 years old. The trees are graft bred from the original Eight Immortals mother trees. The tea garden, located near Tian Liao village is 1000m above sea level.

The tea is harvested by hand in early Spring and then goes through the meticulous processing steps of withering, rolling and roasting, overseen by Tea Master Mr Huang.

Matthew Davison, sommelier at Fischer's Baslow Hall:

"This masterfully crafted tea creates a distinctively fragrant and complex drink. On the nose, it offers notes of nectarine, ginger, sweet baking spices and confit peach with an underlying earthiness. The palate reveals further flavours of ginger, mango, tangerine, marigold and cantaloupe melon. A bitterness reminiscent of blood orange is followed by herbal characters of anise, fennel and tarragon. The tea’s subtle savouriness and lightly tannic finish make it ideal for pairing with soft cheeses or spiced dishes such as harissa roasted squash."
