Good Gosh Yes. I've had teas from them in the past that were stale right off the bat (I would purchase right from the new tea's area, even) Still though, we have to cut our teeth somewhere.

Regarded by many as the third best Chinese green tea, she has a medium body and an amazing orchid fragrance.

and then there are the flavored/scented teas mixed with orchid blossoms/petals

The statement is still true..many Oolongs are, in fact, described as having an orchid aroma/scent..so again what helpful point are you trying to make?

I have definitely smelled fragrant orchids - in fact, when I smelled some of the flowering orchids at a local nursery, I finally understood for the first time why so many Fenghuang dancong varieties are named after orchids.
