Honey Orchid 2018
Milan Xiang Dancong:
The fine mastery that produces Tea Hong’s Honey Orchid has to be coupled with select first flush harvests from high grown tea bushes in order to deliver the kind of quality only a restricted circle of tea aficionados have known and kept to their secret. The overall production volume for such quality in the whole Phoenix region is only a few thousand kilos after all. Most will go to local elites, and the rest to the few hardcore Phoenix oolong fans that are also tea merchants, like us.
Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Bright, refreshing, buttery aroma with high notes of floral honey and accents of high altitude moss and sweet roots. Lively, full body infusion with same consistent notes on tones of malt and lightly toasted cereal. Tinkling bites of tangerine peel. Accents of molasses and ripen peach. Refreshing, malty aftertaste and floral honey after aroma.
We have worked hard to bring you the amazing quality of this year’s batch. Richer, deeper and rounder, complete with a deep woodsy sweetnes that is the classic ideal of Milan Xiang Dancong from high altitude.
Great for both conventional or gongfu approach infusion. If to be brewed in a larger pot, fill the pot with hot water first (standing temperature 85°C), then drop the leaves into the pot gradually. Steep for 4~5 minutes.
