WUYI ROCK OOLONG
Wild grown tea imparts raw flavor note on classic oolong. Finishes extremely well.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site and biodiversity conservation zone, Mount Wuyi is home to this rare oolong from ancient tea bushes. Cultivation of the plants is almost impossible given the topography so exceptional care is taken when handling and plucking the fresh tea shoots. Pluckers typically wear light cotton gloves when handling the leaves, which are harvested in small quantities, so as not to tire the bushes. The fresh leaf is then allowed to naturally semi-ferment. Semi fermentation allows the edges of the leaf to turn while the middle of the leaf stays green. The resulting flavor is at once rich, delicate and laden with floral nuance.
