It is very popular thanks to its sweet and distinctive flavor. Many customers who tried this tea described that its flavor reminds them of Lychee. For me, its flavor is more like ripe peach.
Due to the fame and popularity of this tea, Mi Lan Xiang is very common in tea market. However majority is garden tea that gives very strong aroma, yet lacks thickness and depth in its flavor and taste.
Hojo selected Mi Lan Xiang from the tea tree aged about 80 years old. Despite tree is not very old, it produces tea with intensity of flavor and thickness that is strong enough. It gives totally different level of flavor compared to garden tea; its flavor is much more complex with multi-layered fruity note. We bought tea at the very right timing in spring when tea was just produced. Tea is not undergone additional firing process and therefore it gives very fresh fruity and flowery flavor.
