Magnolia Blossom Fragrance (Yu Lan Xiang)
Perhaps our sweetest tasting oolong! This lot was grown at the highest elevations of the Phoenix Mountains in the Feng Huang area of Guangdong Province. Once harvested, the leaves are withered then artistically shaped by a tea master we know well. The leaves are wood charcoal fired in wicker baskets to create a distinctive, red-green leaf with a fruity and roasted aroma. This small, terraced tea farm harvests from oolong trees that are, in cases, hundreds of years old. Its sweetness is enhanced by a light scent of Yu Lan flower; cup taste is nuanced with a long and pleasant aftertaste.

Supporting adults with disabilities

As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.

The Magnolia is light and relaxing. Great after taste and delicate taste. I'm excited to try the other flower scented teas soon. This is currently my daily Oolong tea and I love it.
Very nice toasty oolong with a subtle floral scent

I wasn't expecting this to be as phenomenal as it is, I'll be back to order more soon, as I've basically not had anything else to drink since this was received in the mail! Thank you for offering something so precious!
