About Qi Lan Oolong

Qi lan(奇兰), usually translated as profound orchid but perhaps also translatable as "strange orchid" or "wonderful orchid", is a style of oolong. It is classified as a se chung oolong when it is grown in Anxi county in Fujian province, China. It is also grown in the Wuyi mountains in Fujian province.

More heavily oxidized and darker-roasted qi lan is darker in color among oolongs, and is often described as being mild and sweet, with a nutty aroma.

Less oxidized qi lan oolongs more closely resemble other greener oolongs, and have a more evident orchid aroma.
