Orchid Fragrance Oolong - Zhe Lan Xiang

This medium oxidized, brown-green leaf offers a sweet and tangy aroma unlike any other of our Phoenix Bird Oolongs. Made in the Dan Cong style, it is grown at an elevation of over 1000 meters in the Phoenix Mountains of Guangdong Province. The terrain is very steep, the soils are red color.  Fresh water springs run underground and feed the tea trees/bushes minerals that create a tea of unparalleled taste. The mountains are shrouded in clouds and mists by morning and evening and hot sun during the day in the tea harvest season, yielding some of China's most prized teas. Long, thin leaves are withered, then wood charcoal-fired to produce a sweet and tangy taste. A very rich and aromatic leaf it will steep to a nectar-like taste, hints of almonds and offer multiple infusions. Lot # 8.

    Intensely Floral

    I've been drinking this for years, and it's been consistently a favorite. There a strong, intense spicy floral aroma that hits you before the cup even touches your lips. Goes down earthy and fragrant.

    After you find the farmer's farm be sure to always ask him to taste his "Aged" that he keeps for special occasions. "Aged" tea is stored in an Urn. I have many "Aged" Oolong's that were acquired by Asking.
