From TeaSpring

Dan Cong Classic is also known as Honey Orchid Dan Cong (Mi Lan Dan Cong) due to its charming flowery sweet fragrance. It is similar to the more popular Feng Huang Dan Cong, except that the tea leaves go through higher level of oxidization and baking. This tea is a favorite amongst the locals of Chao Zhou county in Guangzhou, where it is often brewed Gong Fu style in small yixing teapots. All in all, we feel Dan Cong Classic is a nice tea with a very fair price tag.

Other names:
Mi Lan Dan Cong, Honey Orchid Dan Cong

Floral taste and aroma with honey sweet notes. The refreshing aftertaste lingers on between sips and even after the cup is finished.

The tea leaves are shorter and thinner than that of Feng Huang Dan Cong. The infusion is dark amber in color.

Feng Huang Shan, Guangdong Province

Apparently the last time I had this I wrote that it had, and I quote; sort of a proto-caramel. A caramel stem cell flavour, sort of. end quote.

WTF??? O.O

I mean, I get the caramel-y flavour, but ‘caramel stem cell’??? What was going on in my head that day?

Anyway, that’s not what I wanted to say. All I wanted to say was that I’m sipping a large mug of this while reading Stone Soup comic strips, and sometimes a good tea is just ten times better when it isn’t analysed to bits.



giggles :)


That sounds amazingly delicious. I love Dan Cong, even if it includes proto-caramel-ity.


Soon we’ll have our first generation of caramel zombies trying to take over the world. Sounds scary and delicious at the same time. I wonder if this tea will provide any immunity. Okay, I’m beginning to sound crazy. I’ll stop talking now.


The other day on tv I seen that there are zombie apocalypse survival classes in my area. I was rather amused by that.


Have you seen the CDC Zombie Apocalypse guide? LOL! Not kidding. Government document, online.


haha that is awesome!
