Description

Our Phoenix oolongs are produced in Wudongshan (Wu Dong Mountain), which is one of the many peaks in the Phoenix range with high altitude, good soil, and the oldest tea trees.

“Mi Lan” refers to the beautiful scent of honey orchids that fills the air when you brew the tea.

In terms of oxidation level, Mi Lan Xiang, a type of oolong tea, falls between green teas, which are unoxidized, and black teas, which are fully oxidized. This unique positioning allows it to blend the freshness of green teas with the richness of black teas for a satisfying aftertaste.

Since these Phoenix trees and bushes grow on rocky ground, the liquor of the Phoenix oolongs often have a similar mineral, wet-rock character to Wuyi oolongs.
