Just like its name, a honey like sweetness accompanied by delicate and elegant orchid flower like fragrance
Fresh harvested from the coastal area in Canton province, this 100% pure tea benefits from the mineral-rich soil on Phoenix Mountain. Constantly surrounded by mists and fog, wild tea tress and tea farms populate the mountain in soil as rich as the folklores of Phoenix Dan Cong Tea. These ancient trees exceed 100 – 200 years in age and are from a special type of Oolong known for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma. Believed to be the ancestor of all Oolong teas, it’s well-known for its ten aromatic categories and its rich and complex flavor. Mi Lan which is Honey Orchid Aroma, is one of the most distinguishable aromas from the ten aromatic categories.
Local tea scholars and connoisseurs from China studied and categorized these artisan crafted teas into hundreds of aromatic subgroups. Its aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated, and each aroma comes from tea plant’s natural aromatic compound.

Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):
Rinse leaves and discard the first infusion

Repeat for another 10+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 10 seconds with each additional infusion
We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
