This dark wulong from the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a true classic in modern Dan Cong style.

From the well-known Fengxi village, the Mi Lan Xiang cultivar (litt. “Honey Orchid Fragrance”) really is the flagship of the genre.

Zesty, hoppy and wildly fragrant, its orchid and litchi sub-structure make it a seriously complex tea. Also, a clear favourite among Guangdong producers.
