Premium White Orchid Oolong Tea, introduced from Pinghe County in Southern Fujian during the 1990s, thrives in the unique and favorable geographical conditions of Wuyi Mountain. Crafted through a meticulous process involving over ten steps, including cooling, sun-withering, shaking, killing the green, kneading, initial roasting, initial shaping, re-roasting, re-shaping, and thorough drying, this tea unveils its distinct qualities.
Qilan is a renowned variety among oolong teas, processed with medium heat. The dry tea leaves exhibit a rich, dark green-brown color with tightly rolled and uniform strips. When brewed, the tea liquor showcases a bright, orange-yellow hue, exuding a fragrance reminiscent of honey and orchid that lingers persistently.
Similar to other rock teas like Da Hong Pao, Qilan belongs to the oolong tea category and is best brewed with water at 100 degrees Celsius. The first three infusions should be quick, lasting just three to four seconds, while subsequent infusions can be extended for a more leisurely steeping. Qilan Rock Tea is an enchanting beverage that allows you to savor the essence of tea culture, with each cup being a feast of tea artistry.
