Qilan is a luscious and floral varietal famous in Wuyi as a strip style oolong. This Anxi dark roast Qilan is just as intoxicating as its Wuyi cousin with aromatic wood and orchid similarities, but also a unique bright and juicy complexity and luscious honey sweetness that reflects Anxi's unique terroir and Master Zhang's choices in roast and processing.
'In his own words, Master Zhang describes the differences between different Anxi oolong tea varietals growing in his fields above Daping, Anxi. From Mao Xie and Tieguanyin to Mei Zhan, Qilan and Ben Shan, a wide variety of cultivars grow side-by-side'
