Milan Xiang

 

Milan Xiang is probably the most iconic of the Dancong Oolongs, it is truly a classic. The taste of this tea is like a summer garden: strong notes of orchid, gardenia, hyacinth, osmanthus, and honey dance lightly across the palate. Light and sweet, it is never overwhelming and very gentle over many steeps.
