From JK Tea Shop

This nonpareil Mi Lan Xiang Dancong is from the same place as our nonpareil Huang Zhi Xiang(Li Zai Ping village), which is famous for cultivating over hundred years old Dancong tea trees from ancient time to now by their ancestors.

After brewing the tea, the wild-growing floral aroma mixed with honey aroma comes against noses quickly; Sipping the tea, the sweetness takes over the whole mouth quickly with long-lasting after taste sweetness; delicate tea liquid; strong, smooth & deep Chaqi, down directly to the stomach.

After 6-7 repeated infusions, the tea leaves are still tight-twisted; After 15 times of infusion, the aroma and taste is still quite strong, which is another sign of high quality old trees Dancong.

Dancong Oolong tea is famous for its floral fragrance and long after sweetness. Besides, the tea soup thickness is sought-after for many heavy tea drinkers.

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.

Tips: for all high mountain Wudong Dancong, it has the honey aroma, but also wild-floral aroma as well.

I have been brewing this over two days for possibly up to 10 infusions and it’s still great. Even after these many steepings, it doesn’t have any bitterness or rough edges. I haven’t, however, given it the attention it deserves. Yesterday I started brewing it after eating very spicy food, and today I was eating a lemon lavender cookie with it…But, I’m going to be optimistic and give it a high rating.

Even more fragrant than Imperial Grade of Mi Lan. Its fragrance is more flowery than sweet though.

The tea itself is of color of liquid honey and is a rather pleasantly sweet. I imagine it can be steeped for longer time than Imperial as it has no bitterness at all.

Strangely enough – I like lower grade better :) This is of course a great tea, but Imperial grade’s taste is rather unique and quite a lot more interesting.
