Mi Lan Xiang (Honey Orchid) Dancong Oolong 2019
A dark oolong from Chaozhou City in Guangdong Province in southern China. This Dancong Oolong will be exactly on Fenghuang Mountain (Fenghuang Shan = Phoenix Mountain) cultivated.
Taste and aftertaste
The name Mi Lan Xiang means with honey and orchid aroma, because the dark oolong has the natural aroma of orchid blossom and a complex sweet taste is reminiscent of honey.
This dark Oolong with strong and rich minerals can be prepared more than 8 times using the kung fu method. The first 3-4 infusions taste like honey with a pomelo bowl, after 5 infusions the taste of the pomelo bowl becomes weaker, the honey sweetness remains up to 8 infusions. The deep and rich minerals in the Mi Lan Xiang Oolong stay in your throat for a long time, which is why you experience a sweet aftertaste.
Smell the tea and relax
The scent of this Mi Lan Xiang is so floral and fruity that you will find it as calming as a walk in a garden full of flowers. But please don't think that the aroma is artificially added, the smell and sweet taste of the tea are 100% natural from the tea leaves and from the oxidation and roasting process.
To enjoy the scent of the dry tea leaves, warm your cup, gaiwan or teapot with hot water, pour the water out again and add about 5 grams of dry tea leaves. The warmth of the cup lets the tea leaves release the aroma and let you relax completely
