Orchid Grātus 2011: Lanhua Xiang Dancong
Although the bouquet fragrance of spring Phoenix oolongs are not as lusciously exquisite as winter ones, their overall fuller, smoother character distinguishes themselves as even finer and more sophisticated gastronomical products. Certain areas of Phoenix, especially those in higher altitudes, are strictly one harvest per year. Such as where this Orchid Grātus is produced. It is a local traditional belief that tea bushes not over exploited throughout the year give better first flushes in Spring.
