Phoenix oolong tea dates back 900 years to when its ancestor's leaves were offered as a tribute to the Song Dynasty. Our Phoenix oolong was hand-harvested from a single garden of tall “Mi Lan” or “Honey Orchid” trees. Perhaps our most fragrant tea, honey orchid Phoenix oolong has persistent aromas of honey, ripe peaches, apricots and nectarines that evolve with each successive infusion. The infusion is buttery and rich, with a distinctively fruity, woodsy character. Honey Orchid Phoenix Oolong thrives under multiple infusions.
