The caffeine in Phoenix Dancong Black Tea can stimulate the cerebral cortex, exciting the central nervous system and providing a refreshing effect.

  • Heat-clearing:

Brewing Instructions for Phoenix Dancong Black Tea:

Brewing Phoenix Dancong Black Tea is crucial for bringing out its excellent flavor. It involves mastering several key factors, including water quality, water temperature, tea-to-water ratio, and brewing time.

Water Quality:
Use mountain spring water or purified water for the best results. The quality of water directly affects the taste of the tea.

Water Temperature:
Ideally, the water temperature should be between 95 to 98 degrees Celsius. Avoid continuous boiling, as excessive boiling can alter water quality and impact the taste of the tea. Heat the water until it produces "fish eyes" (small bubbles with a faint sound), and then it's ready.

Tea-to-Water Ratio:
For one to three servings, use 3 to 5 grams of tea. For four to eight servings, use 5 to 6 grams . 

Brewing Time:
Control the brewing time within 2 seconds for the first infusion, 3 seconds for the second infusion, and slightly longer for subsequent infusions (approximately 6-10 infusions). Adjust the brewing time according to personal preferences.

After brewing, Phoenix Dancong Black Tea can be personalized by adding fruit juice, honey, coffee, milk, etc. It can also be turned into iced tea or milk tea with the addition of ice cubes. For a unique twist, try adding lemon slices to create "Lemon Black Tea."

These guidelines ensure the optimal brewing of Phoenix Dancong Black Tea allowing you to savor its rich flavor and enjoy the tea according to your preferences.
