Excellent but pricy

The tea was tasty and is amazing but unfortunately it’s quite pricy and cost per unit is quite large compared to competitors

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!
