Phoenix Honey Oolong comes from ancient trees on Phoenix Mountain, revered for centuries as a connoisseur's tea. We wondered during a recent visit how the tea would fare with cold steeping, a practice unheard-of by the locals, and commissioned some to be made. The result was one of the finest cold brew teas we’ve ever tasted—not at all astringent, with a seamless liqueur of mildly spiced honey whose piquant aroma brilliantly survived the cold.

Raise a cup in a triumphant toast to trying something new.

Steeping Guidelines:
1 packet | 1 quart cool water | 6-9 hours
Steep in cool water in glass or porcelain pitcher.
Serves 40  8oz. cups per 1oz. of whole leaf tea
