One of the most common and popular varietals of all Dancong, “Milan Xiang” literally means “honey orchid fragrance”, which couldn’t be a better way to sum up the character of this tea.
This tea uses the same material as the 2019 version, coming from 30-40 years old fangyang (left to grow) mid-mountain bushes on Wudong mountain. It has undergone slightly lighter electric roasting than most Milans, which causes the flavour to lean a little more toward the floral side, although there is still a nice honey sweetness in there.
Even though the material can’t boast of being high mountain or old bush, and the processing isn’t the costly and labour intensive charcoal method, this tea performs well above its price.
Because this varietal is so common, this is easily our most sampled tea and the type most often offered to us when served tea in Chaozhou. We have tried everything from the worst, bottom of the barrel Milans to the top tier, old bush teas. This particular tea could easily be mistaken for the latter, as it has an excellent mouthfeel and powdery-milky texture that is associated with higher end Dancong.
Please note that the 250g size does not include a tin.
We recommend brewing this tea using Chaozhou style gongfu brewing. Here’s how it’s done:

Just what I need, typical mi lan dancong does not disappoint
Alexandra Verville-Paris –
Bright and sharp as a pineapple can taste. Great flowery taste with a touch of wet rock at the end. Definitively the good tea to pick to feel like summer.
