From Yunnan Sourcing

Mi Lan Xiang (aka Honey Orchid Aroma) Dan Cong is the most well-known Dan Cong style. Bai Ye varietal is used and was expertly processed over a period of four months to give it a special thick, sweet and floral (orchid) aroma. The leaves are larger and broader than may other varietals and the finished dry leaf is a deep brown color. The brewed leaves are also more brown (and less green) than most other Dan Cong oolongs. This higher degree of oxidation due to roasting brings out the delicious honey and orchid taste. When you experience the wonderful taste keep in mind it’s all due to the skill of the master who lovingly processed this tea into something so special and delicious!

Our Classic “Mi Lan Xiang” is a medium level of roast, with a robust taste of fruit and honey, and a lingering Orchid taste/aroma. It’s grown naturally at an altitude of 550 meters in the Wu Dong Mountains.

This is a medium level of roast, classic style of processing.

Indeed, this seems like a classic MLX Dan Cong. It feels a little less roasted and more refined than some cheaper versions I have had of this, but the flavor profile is very recognizable. I feel that this typical flavor profile doesn’t really do it for me anymore. It’s nice, but I think I am more interested in those more buttery, flowery Dan Cong oolongs. The mouthfeel of this is lively and tingly, which is quite nice.
