Honey Orchid ‘Mi Lan Xiang’ is one of our all time favorite Dan Cong’s and this is the best Honey Orchid we have ever had in stock! Dan Cong Is an Oolong from the Phoenix mountain range in Guangdong. This is a higher elevation example. Generally, better Dan Cong is higher elevation . The aroma is dynamic roasted citrus tones with long lasting vivid after taste. The texture is fairly smooth. The flavour is bursting with roasted notes and deep citrus and did I mention that wonderful aftertaste? The aroma might be dynamic but the tea as a whole is graceful making this an overall top mark Dan Cong experience! try me!

    I’ve been meaning to leave some reviews for a while, having bought a small amount some time ago. I don’t recall trying any Dan Cong, so didn’t really know what to expect. The first time I brewed this was what I call ‘European’ style… 2.5g leaf/250ml water at 90° and brewed in a pot for 3 minutes. I really enjoyed it, but this wasn’t what this tea deserves. A few days ago I had a ‘proper’ gong fu session… Wow! This tea really showed its nature… Wonderful fresh, juicy notes (citrussy mango?), particularly on the 2nd and 3rd steeps that were swamped previously. Beautiful!
