Zhi Lan Xiang 200 years Old Single Tree | Collection Box

Iris scent
Product code: CSTAD-510

Cultivated on the foothills of the Phoenix (Feng Huang) mountain range in China's Guangdong province, following the ancestral knowledge of the Wulong Dan Cong culture, the leaves of this 200 year old tea tree transport us into an unparalleled taste experience. We are privileged to have access to Mr. Huang's accomplished work in the fascinating art of processing tea from a single tree.

Its bronze-coloured liquor, smooth and refreshing, overflows with aromas and flavours. The infusion first transports us to voluptuous nuances of flowers (orchids, violets, iris), followed by citrus flavours (orange zest) and exotic fruits, mixed with sweet notes of honey and torrefaction. This is followed by a particularly long finish in which the airy floral scents return to charm us, leaving a subtle reminder of the woody smell of incense.

A precious tea of rare complexity.
