Zheng Yan Wuyi Shui Xian Rock



Tea scholars have long been attracted to the biologically diverse and unique climate of Wu Yi Shan. When Scottish spy Robert Fortune smuggled the first tea bushes out of China, he traveled to Wu Yi Shan for samples. This excellent Wuyi Rock oolong comes from trees deep within the Wuyi Protected Reserve (Zheng-Yan). The trees are 60 years old and growing naturally. Our Wuyi’s nutty, dark-roasted flavor profile has won over many coffee drinkers.

The taste is deep and complex with a rich body, a roasted aroma, and sweet finish of raisin sugar, honeysuckle, and roasted barley. Warm and earthy notes of bittersweet chocolate and peat moss also are present.
