"Night-Blooming Jasmine" Ye Lai Xiang Dan Cong Oolong Tea
DUE TO HIGH DEMAND THIS TEA IS SOLD OUT.
A young monk once asked the wise tea master Lao Cha:
– Sensei, out of all the wonderful Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong teas, which one is the most precious gem?
– It is Ye Lai Xiang, that smells like a jasmine flower blooming at night. Its taste and aroma are so tender and so exquisite. This Oolong is not just tea. It is poetry.
Lai Xiang translates as “night-blooming jasmine aroma”. It is indeed named after the tuberose flower which blooms at night. Ye Lai Xiang Dan Cong Oolong Tea is considered rare since it is not widely cultivated. The smell is so sweet and powerful that it is pleasantly entrancing.
Ye Lai Xiang has been grown for centuries on the Phoenix Mountains, in Guandong, China, and is one of the gems of DanCong teas.
