What a wonderful way to start my morning. This is my current favorite mi lan xiang oolong. This tea has just the right amount of astringency, and tolerates multiple steepings without getting bitter. The best part of this tea is the finish which lingers on and on, sometimes for hours after.
2012 Supreme Honey Orchid Dan Chong
About: 2012 has been a great year for our exclusive Honey Orchid Dan Chong Oolong, also known as “Mi Lan Xiang” in Chinese. Made exclusively from an old grove 1000 meters above sea level on Wudong Mountain, this tea has a remarkable honey and lychee fruit aroma.
