‘Qi Lan’ is the name of this wonderful oolong, which literally means ‘Rare Orchid’. The leaves of this tea hard handpicked and are withered on bamboo. Relatively low heat is applied to to the delicate leaves, while the baking time is extended. The result is a Wuyi Rock tea that lives up to its name: a full, smooth and sweet nutty texture accompanied with a floral aroma of orchid and rosewood. You would almost think this tea is perfumed, but it’s not!
