Qi Lan Xiang

Rare Orchid Fragrance
Product code: CSTW-19
Add to my notebook

Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong, this wulong  has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet.

Its liquor thrusts its vegetal and sweet (fried courgette) character, embellished with rich nuances of fresh cream and coconut.

Its finish is thirst-quenching and shows a tangy edge evoking pineapple. Also an excellent ice tea!
