This is a well matured Mi Lan Xiang. In fact, this tea is that ripe that some people guessed in blind tastings that it is a old puer tea. Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong is usually characterized by its particularly honey-like sweetness which is underlaid with a subtle fragrance of orchid. But this tea has the typical warm character of well matured teas. This tea is a must for tea conoissers!
Dan Cong Oolong is grown on the slopes of the Phoenix Mountains around the city Fenghuang together with other crops and is partly wild. Through this high biodiversity are pests naturally 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 grown by a boutique producer from Fenghuang and is, thanks to a centuries-old knowledge, processed to a superior oolong. The whole family is involved in the harvest and also in the entire tea production. The tea is still traditionally processed like in old times: The leaves are withered and dried in bamboo trays and then roasted over charcoal fire.
Through the high oxidation, the strong roasting and the long maturing is this Dan Cong particularly interesting for connoisseurs who like well matured vintage teas. This particular Mi Lan Xiang was stored in Fenghuang for 30 years.
