Mi lan xiang (蜜兰香/honey-orchid scent) dancong oolong unsurprisingly honey-sweet liquor and noticeable orchid fragrance. This varietal has a profile that is very easy to accept, and part of the reason it is one of the most popular and commonly found dancongs.

Our Spring 2016 Nectar mi lan xiang dancong is grown at what is considered “mid-mountain” – an altitude of at least 600 meters. While this altitude doesn’t have the same cache as teas designated as “high mountain”, it affords good quality at a budget price. This light-medium roasted dancong has an initial nutty taste that transforms into a noticeable honey-sweet liquor with plenty of fragrance.

We recommend trying this tea in comparison with its higher altitude brother, our “Top Shelf Nectar” in order to compare the differences between same varietal grown at different altitudes.

This tea has been tested for safe levels of common agrochemicals and has passed with virtually no detectable amounts. For more details or a full copy of the report, please contact us.

Last hawkband1 sample to try, I have all of them to keep! I’ve always wanted to try a dan cong from Bitterleaf, and I’ve wanted to try their hong chas. Thanks to hawkband1, I get to try it.

I’m not sure if this is the higher grade leaf, but I think it might be the regular one based on the image. I’m not too picky about leaf grade and I love me some Dan Cong especially if it is from a good source.

Gong fu as instructed on the website, maybe less leaf. The honey taste and fragrance was strong on this one with the orchid floral, some definite fruitiness that leans more towards apricot and grape than grapefruit. The grapefruit is still there. Who knows, imaginary approximations are always fun. Second steep had a honey-oatmeal like taste that I thought was pretty coal. I don’t always get oat notes and they are fairly welcomed.

This was a pretty typical Dan Cong, but a high quality one. I think I’d let a newbie try, but this is for someone trying oolongs for oolongs specifically.


It’s the regular grade of the two. Glad you liked them. And wow! you went through those samples quickly. I’m about to try the Autumn Warmth.
