Chinese Name: 兰贵人

Lan Gui Ren, which translates to "Lady Orchid", originates from the southwestern province of Yunnan, China. This tea is produced by tightly compressing the tea leaves with powdered American Ginseng and Liquorice Grass into the shape of tiny tablets. The infusion yields an amber colored beverage with a mesmerizing orchid aroma. The rich taste and its sweet aftertaste makes this a very desirable scented tea.

Other names:

Lady Orchid


The taste is somewhat thick and strong, with a very sweet aftertaste and liquorice tingle.


Tightly rolled large tea leaves, coated with a thin layer of powdered American Ginseng and Liquorice Grass.


Yunnan Province, China

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Fill the teapot 1/2 to 3/4 full with tea leaves, or 3 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using purple clay. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (207°F) to 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can purple clay or porcelain tea ware.

My all-time favourite.It has strong taste so dont overbrew it.

I didn't love this one. Liquorice, orchids, ginseng and oolong are all good, but maybe not rolled into one neat little package in my teacup. I liked the scent, which was incense-like, more than the taste.

My friend brought back some of this tea with her from China, and everyone shes shared it with has absolutely loved it. Anytime we have a get together, we ask if shes brought "the tea" (since we could never remember what it was called), and so when I finally found it here I was thrilled. This is a very different tea - a lovely flavour and then this strangely sweet, honey-like aftertaste that lingers. My absolute favourite. :)

This is my favorite tea. I discovered a version in Guangzhou, China on a trip a few years ago. ChineseTeaArt's is not quite as strong or sweet, but it is an excellent Oolong with a mild sweet ginseng aftertaste. I drink it nearly every day.

Very good, but a little on the sweet side as compared to others of its kind. It has a wonderful finish!

This is not the Lan Gui Ren that made me fall in love with the tea. I understand that the real tea-wonk looks down on those who flirt with the flavored greens. I am not a real tea-wonk. I love flavored teas. I like trying new ones. I'm a bit disappointed in this tea. Last year I bought ChineseTeaArt's Lan Gui Ren and was enchanted by the aroma and the sweetness of the follow-thru. This year, there's less of that. It's still a delightful oolong and I'm on my third infusion right now.

this is a nice addition to anyones tea stash... i enjoy to try combining similar teas and varying quantities, the Lan Gui Ren brings a slightly sweet aftertaste to this... i dont enjoy it straight as it becomes more of a sweetened beverage since the licorice and ginseng overpower the tea.. i great to mix with the green wu long teas...

This tea was what I expected and more. I could not discern if the sweetness was from the licorice or ginseng. I could not taste both, but the sweetness is what I desired in the aftertaste. What surprised me was the amount of times I could steep the leaves and still have acceptable flavour. I would highly recommend this tea.

very interesting tea. i really enjoyed the flavor and scent. Im not sure if it matters, but some of the leaves would not open fully, so i don't know if that affects the tea

Sweet and pleasant, but nothing special. It just isnt as good as I expected, especially considering that liquorice, ginseng, and oolong are among my favorite things.

Excellent tea. I agree with others that the liquorice is a little strong.

this is a very surprisingly delicious tea ! It has a very unique finish that resembles a black oolong (it may very well be a black oolong for all i know).. to me, it has a licorice type of finish
