Honey Orchid (Mi Lan Xiang)

My desert island Oolong!

If I had to choose to drink only one Oolong for the rest of my life, this would be a top contender! With sweet floral notes reminiscent of a red or purple tea, this Oolong has it all! Steep after steep the flavors unfold and transform, lifting and smelling the lid of my Gaiwan reveals a intoxicating blend of spring flowers, juicy fruits, and finally that grounded nutty warmth that is present in all great Oolongs.
This is a tea I save for special occasions to be shared with friends and people who truly appreciate the joy of tea!

So Tasty!

This is honestly the one tea I always come back to! Steep after steep, it develops and gets better.

My Favorite Tea of All Time

I'm not an oolong fan, but I had this blend at the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Japanese Friendship Garden and I was HOOKED. When I finished my first batch back in 2021 and tried to buy again I was so sad they didn't have it. Years later, it is finally back and you DON'T want to miss out on this experience. Actually give strong notes of honey, and I add a little extra to really bring out the flavor. Still my favorite to this day and now my family and partner love it too!
