Qi Lan oolong (rare orchid) is a popular tea varietal/cultivar grown throughout the oolong producing areas of Fujian. This tea’s dried leaves are the long and twisting shape and dark greenish red-brown color characteristic of traditional Wuyi Rock Tea. The fragrance of the dried leaves is toasty. It was traditionally roasted over charcoal for 18-20 hours, resulting in a moderately dark roasted finished tea.
