In 1939, the grandfather of our dear friend, Mr. Chan, planted a tea garden that began a legacy in legendary Fenghuangshan. Our longtime Phoenix producer possesses a reverence for what he inherited: the gardens, the old trees, the craft. Yet, he has a modern thirst for experimentation, bridging old and new. Jasmine Orchid, or Mo Li Xiang (mo lee shee-ong), is among the 12 famed dan cong varieties. Abundantly fragrant, the variety has thrived in spite of the region’s notorious drought spells. This year’s harvest exemplifies Mo Li Xiang’s eponymous florality with a liquor that lingers plush and juicy.  Notes of balsamic, orange blossom honey, and juniper berry.
