Dancong Oolong tea is famous for its floral fragrance and long lasting sweetness. In addition, the tea soup thickness is a characteristic sought-after by many tea connoisseurs.
The Mi Lan Xiang (Honey orchid) Dancong belongs to the honey aroma category. Our Mi Lan Xiang is sourced directly from tea farmers living in Mt Wudong. Only the high-mountain Mi Lan Xiang has the honey but floral aroma & taste. It has a delicate and sweet note, with long-lasting aftertaste that is pleasantly sweet. This tea can bear up to a high number of infusions and can compete with good Pu Erh tea in that respect.
This tea is a high-roasted tea. You may store it at normal temperature and it can be stored for a long time. As an aged tea, this oolong has a better medical effect and is commonly drank by local people.
All of our Dancong is sourced directly from tea farmers. My tea supplier personally visits the farmers and selects the teas.
