    Mi Lan Xiang - Phoenix Dancong Oolong Tea

    This Mi Lan Xiang also named Honey Orchid, is from Shenya village in Wudong Mountain, around 600-700 meters high above the sea level. Well-selected the small arbors trees in Shenya with ages around 50-70 years old; this tea has very good Chaqi, delicate & soft tea taste mixed with natural honey & floral fragrance in the tea liquid as well. Rich mouth feeling, smooth & deep throat feeling(good Chaqi aspect) with lingering after taste sweetness. Made by skillful tea farmer; after 4-5 times of infusion, the tea leaves are still quite twisted and tight together, which is a good sign of high mountain, good-processed teas. After repeated infusion over 12 times, its floral aroma & sweet taste is still there. All of our Honey orchid & yellow sprig Dancongs are high-roasted by the traditional Charcoal method; so these two new teas, their charcoal aroma will disappear after 2nd infusion; then comes out the lovely floral or Gardenia aroma.
