Description
 
This newly refined version, our long-popular Orchid Oolong is now made using premium quality Tie Guan Yin that has been fired before being scented with Chinese "Magnolia" (Yulan orchid) blossoms. The result is a gentle yet rich and intensely floral tea with the Ti Kuan Yin varietal's unmistakable aroma and taste. The almost fruity orchid flavor becomes apricot- and peach-like as the liquor cools. A superb tea you will find hard to forget.

PREPARATION:
We suggest steeping 3-5 grams of tea per 8 oz. of water at 70-80C for 1-2 minutes. Lower water temperature and lengthen steeping time to produce more floral character; raise water temperature and shorten steeping time to produce more intensity and full flavors. As always, adjust quantity of leaves, time and temperature according to personal preference.

Orchid Oolong February 6, 2017
Reviewer: Colette Perfit from Olivebridge , NY United States  
My first time trying this varietal. I like it very much, but might be a bit too floral for my taste buds. It is VERY rich and sweet.  The fragrance is lovely!

Soft and fruity April 1, 2015
Reviewer: Andrew Cohen from Highland Park, IL United States  
A very soft and fruity tea.  This is my first batch of this, and it makes a very welcome change of pace from the more challenging (i.e., various fired oolongs, ti guan yin, mao feng, etc.) as it seems to resist bitterness and has a nice soft "mouth feel."  It's pretty sweet, so don't be surprised by that.
