Phoenix Mountain Oolong, Mi Lan Xiang, Wudong Old Tree
- This tea is of David Lee Hoffman's -- The Phoenix Collection.
- Mi Lan Xiang is my favorite Phoenix Oolong. It will definitely raise some eyebrows for those trying this tea for the first time, followed with that inevitable question, is this tea flavored? It’s not, the rich flavors in this tea are a result of the area in which it's grown and this tea tastes like magic!
It is also a very serious tea, descended from a long line of Phoenix Shui Xian tea trees all bearing the unique honeyed aroma and flavor.
Using a 4 ounce Gaiwan, I recommend 3 grams of tea, at 185 temperature. Use boiling water to first rinse the tea leaves, then brew for 1 minute. On the second infusion, steep for 1 minute, adding approximately 10 seconds to subsequent infusions. Brewed this way, the tea would yield more than 10 rounds.
