Wuyi is an unusual place. The odd looking mountains seem to have violently erupted out of the ground. These mountains are often shrouded in clouds due to the unusual location near the warm ocean.
The outcropping of rocks and the surrounding hill which are not too high along with generous rainfall and plenty of sunshine create a unique a highly coveted tea in China. Due to the relatively small area of Wuyi, this tea is not as plentiful as other Chinese teas. You will rarely find this tea in a supermarket or in tea bags as it is for the more sophisticated tea drinker. The tea leaf looks long and is not tightly balled up but rather slightly twisted and broad.
This organic tea steeps up to a beautiful dark amber color with little astringency associated with Breakfast teas. The flavor has been described as "peachy-honey" This mellow mouth feel makes this tea easy to drink and enjoy. Steep some up today.
