With a light floral aroma,  creamy body, and buttery mouthfeel, Bai Ya Qi Lan oolong's flavor is like a cross between Tiequanyin and Jin Xuan. The liquor has some vegetal notes and a lingering sweet finish. This tea is great for gong fu brewing as the flavor continues to develop with each steep. 

South Fujian produces many tea cultivars for oolong tea, the most famous is Tieguanyin. However, it would be a shame to overlook other great teas from the area. Another famous tea cultivar is Bai Ya Qi Lan which is widely planted in the tea gardens of Daqinshan area in Pinghe County.  One translation of the name is Strange Orchid, which was perhaps given for the distinctive floral aroma.
