Rare Orchid, also known as "Qi Lan" in Mandarin Chinese, is a fragrant oolong tea from Wuyi mountain, Fujian Province, China, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its pristine natural beauty. Our Rare Orchid Oolong Tea, made from tender spring leaves of Qi Lan cultivar benefited from sweet mountain spring water and mineral rich soil of Wuyi Mountain, has been lightly roasted to create a highly aromatic and wonderfully balanced infusion.
Baked to perfection, Rare Orchid Oolong offers an infusion that harmoniously blends a fragrant floral note with lightly baked (buttery, brioche and vanilla) and sweet, juicy, fruity flavours (honeydew melon, peach). The liquor is so gentle and smooth with a silky mouthfeel, while the floral sweetness lingers long on the palate.
A gentle, delicate beauty that will be much appreciated by oolong tea connoisseurs.
