SUMMARY 

Type: Oolong Tea 
Origin: Wuyi Mountains, Fujian China

Wuyi Rock tea is a unique type of oolong tea that is only produced in the Wuyi Mountains which have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for cultural, scenic, and biodiversity values since 1999. Teas grown in this region are known for their "rocky" mineral characteristics or "Yan Yun". 

WHERE ARE THEY FROM?

Our Wuyi Rock teas are sourced direct from the Wuyi Rock Tea Research Base, founded by Mr. Wang Shunming, a highly regarded and respected Wuyi Rock Tea Master, and also a former care taker of the Da Hong Pao mother trees. His teas are often considered the bench mark by which many Rock Teas can be judged.

TASTING NOTES

A deeply warming and balanced tea that combines the mineral-like qualities of Rock Tea with a roasted, slightly smokey and spicy, cinnamon-like aroma and after taste. As you continue to steep and re-steep the tea, an increasing sweetness begins to develop. 

PREPARATION NOTES

The best way to enjoy Wuyi Rock tea is using the traditional Gongfu brewing such as Gaiwan or Yixing tea pot. We recommend using a greater leaf to water ratio, quicker steeps and brewing the tea at higher temperatures (approx. 93 degrees)However, all of these teas still tastes great when brewed in a teapot, western style.
