Organic Wuyi Rock oolong is an especially pure form of tea from Mount Wuyi, situated in the Nanping Prefecture of Fujian. The outstanding biodiversity on this mountain led it to being designated a world heritage site in 1999 by UNESCO. Mount Wuyi is also the home of organic rock tea. The topography of this region makes it almost impossible to cultivate new tea plants; therefore, the existing tea bushes are cared for meticulously. The fresh leaves are allowed to partially ferment naturally. This creates a rich and delicate tea that engulfs the region in a floral scent. This tea taste has a masculine touch and an obvious hint of cinnamon. The Rou Gui Wuyi Rock tea got its name from this cinnamon taste.
