Honey Orchid Oolong | Mi Lan Xiang

January 03, 2015


15916990195_b59c6caf3f_cOn my last Taiwan trip, I visited a tea shop (one of the oldest in Taipei!) owned by a friend’s family.

15915142471_1e8e4ed4d7_cWe cupped six oolongs over the afternoon. And when we steeped the Honey Orchid Oolong (aka Mi Lan Xiang) her aunt noted that it was excellent with honey in the winter and champagne in the summer.

15729766560_419854dcb5_c…it’s lovely late at night with a tiny spoonful of honey. This oolong has natural honey notes (hence the name), and this further enhances it.
