– 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.

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 orchid, as well as a honey-sweet taste.
