From JK Tea Shop

This Mi Lan Xiang is from Shenya village in Wudong Mountain, around 600-700 meters high above the sea level.

Well-selected the small arbors trees in Shenya with ages around 50-70 years old; this tea has very good Chaqi, delicate & soft tea taste mixed with natural honey & floral fragrance in the tea liquid as well. Rich mouth feeling, smooth & deep throat feeling(good Chaqi aspect) with lingering after taste sweetness.

Made by skillful tea farmer; after 4-5 times of infusion, the tea leaves are still quite twisted and tight together, which is a good sign of high mountain, good-processed teas. After repeated infusion over 12 years, its floral aroma & sweet taste is still there.

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.

I can’t set steeping time lower than 15 sec so I mark it here :
this tea requires VERY short steeping time of probably 1-3 seconds for an infusion

Ahhhhh…. The aroma of the dry leaves of this tea is truly heavenly. Thick, overpowering scent of honey that won’t even let you brew it for a minute or so because you just can’t stop enjoying it :)

I am always amazed at how unflavored, unblended dancong tea can smell so good and this one is truly a pinnacle of this quality. Even last year’s Huang Zhi Xiang from the same company pales in comparison.

The taste is really heavy and bitter with sweet hints so very short steepings of a few seconds are advisable (bitterness isn’t overpowering then). I’d say this tea is much like wine – it’s bitterness is mature and isn’t offputting at all if you just remember to pour it out almost immediately. The advice stands even for later infusions – i am currently at 5th and 2 seconds still produce very strong flavor.
