Rou Gui Wuyi Oolong


A bold, exquisitely beautiful tea with a big presence, Rou Gui Wuyi Oolong is one of the signature rock teas (also called yancha), from the Wuyi Mountains.    Rou Gui is a specific varietal of plant that lends the tea a note of cassia or cinnamon, generally you notice it on the finish with that signature cinnamon-like sweetness.

The tea steeps warm and inviting, with a balanced deep roast and a lingering, relaxing aftertaste.  There is a woodsy, grilled peach quality to it with the faintest hint of coconut.

2020 Harvest, grown within the Wuyi World Heritage Reserve.  Charcoal roasted four times, making this a great candidate for aging.  No pesticides are used in the production of this tea.
