Mi Lan Xiang 2016

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTW-113

Mr. Huang has mastered the art of aging Chinese Wulong. After regular firings to bring out the character of the leaves, Huang offers this delicious version of the famous Mi Lan Xiang (Honey Orchid Scent) from Guangdong province.

The dry leaves, with their attractive twisted shape, reveal powerful tropical fruit flavours combined with the caramelized sugar aromas from the roasting process. On the palate, the smooth liquor offers sweet notes of ripe peaches, followed by very delicate woody, floral and cereal tastes.

The persistence of this tea is exceptional.

Mi Lan Xiang 2014

Years of aging and repeated firing by artisan producer Mr. Huang have darkened the leaves of this Chinese Wulong from the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang). The translation, "honeyed orchid scent", is all there in the cup. The aromas are deepened by the delicate process of roasting the tea to renew and slightly transform the flavours over the years.

Bai Mu Dan 2012

Here is an aged white tea pressed into a cake from the Fujian province in eastern China. The enthusiasm for this product since the early 2000s has gradually given rise to an expertise among tea craftsmen who wish to distinguish themselves. Mr. Wang's skilful processing of buds and leaves caught our attention.
