Lao Cong Mi Lan Xiang

Lao Cong OolongMi Lan Xiang

This exceptional Dan Cong is called Mi Lan Xiang. It  translates honey-orchid fragrance and describes the character of the tea. Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong is characterized by its particularly honey-like sweetness which is underlaid with a subtle fragrance of orchid. This type of oolong is also called Phoenix Dan Cong and can be infused several times.

Dan Cong Oolong is grown on the slopes of the Pheonix mountains around the city Fenghuang together with other crops and is partly wild. Through this high biodiversity are pest naturaly controlled and the use of pesticides is unnecessary. The Phoenix Mountain range extends between a height of 300 and up to 1500m. The climate with an average temperature of 22°C is considered mild.

Tea production in Chaozhou has a thousand year old tradition and the historical knowledge of the art of tea is passed on from generation to generation. This tea is made of tea leaves from 200 years old tea bushes (lao cong) and thanks to a centuries-old knowledge processed to a superior oolong. Tea made of leaves from old tea bushes have a very complex and intense aroma with mineralic notes.
