Product Description

Phoenix Mt. Wudong Dancong Oolong Mi Lan Xiang "Honey Orchid" 2014 Spring Nonpareil Song Variety Tea is a rare and wonderful experience. Nonpareil class teas are not often available outside of China.

Mi Lan Xiang (honey orchid) Dancong belongs to the honey aroma category. This is the absolute best of the best for this tea both in tea selection and processing. 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 and taste. It has a delicate and sweet note, with a 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 also part of our sampler pack.

Dancong Oolong tea is famous for its floral fragrance and long-lasting sweetness. In addition, the tea soup thickness is a characteristic that is highly sought after by many tea connoisseurs.

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 high-roasted tea, this oolong is reported to have better medicinal qualities 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.
