Description

蜜兰香单枞 (Mi Lan Xiang Dancong)

Guandong Tea Farm & Production, Fen Huang Shan, 
Chao'an County, Guangdong, China

Just in from the 2017 Ming Qiang spring harvest.

From a specific sub-varietal, this tea is a direct descendant of the original Guangdong tea noted for its distinctive sweet aroma. Especially on a fast gongfu steep, the sweet honey dew flavour comes to the fore, and the palate is filled with a lasting mint-like cool. This honey orchid grade has a higher melon fragrance and less smoke than its regular phoenix oolong counterpart.

Dry leaves: long, wiry twisted light brown leaves with golden tinges
Liquor: light tangerine colour 
Taste: honey dew, rock melon, honey, mild mint.
Process: withered, medium oxidisation, twisted and baked
