Mi Lan Xiang Phoenix Oolong 50g

From ancient bushes grown on the terraces of Phoenix Mountains in northern Guangdong, these leaves are picked on a sunny morning, dried in the afternoon, sorted, and then ‘rattled’ through the following night. The next day, the leaves are fried briskly in a wok to arrest fermentation. The result is fresh, likened to the honey of orchids.
