The Great Emperor of All under Heaven once asked the wise tea master Lao Cha:
– Tell me, wise old man, is there a tea that could compare in its fragrance to a beautiful flower?
– Yes, there is, your Highness. It’s called Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong Oolong, and it possesses an outstanding Orchid Aroma as well as the sweetness of honey. Drinking the tea is like sipping the sweet sap of Heaven.
Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong Oolong tea, which translates as Honey Orchid Aroma, is made from the Dan Cong tea tree – famous for its ability to mimic different flavors. This Mi Lan Xiang, from the “Flower Aroma” series, is one of the most acclaimed Dan Cong teas. It possesses the fragrance of irises and orchids, as well as a honey-sweet taste. Dan Cong teas are a special type of oolong teas that grow on Phoenix (Fenghuang) mountains, in Guandong, China. Our Mi Lan Xiang Oolong is full of "shan yun" (山韵) – "mountain rhyme", (similar to "yan yun" (岩韵) for Wuyi Rock Oolongs), used to describe the unique characteristics of Fenghuang Dan Cong Oolongs.
Chen Shao Bo's grandparents founded Chan's family tea gardens in Tian Zhu Keng and Wudong villages in Feng Huang Mountain. Now, Shao Bo is the head of the family and is attending the tea trees that his ancestors planted, making him a third-generation tea farmer.
