In the northwest province of Fujian there is Wuyi Mountain with 7,080 ft. elevations.  A wonder.  Where the richness of its biodiversity in floral and fauna, along with the tea trees growing in the decayed volcanic rock amongst waterfalls, has been preserved since ancient times.  First cared for by the Taoist Monks, protected by the Chinese government and pronounced in 1999 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Enveloped by the mountains, humid with rain and the year round mist of fog and clouds, a microclimate designed by the gods has been created.  Water so pure and the earth so rich in minerals from the rocks.

It is here that some of the best teas on earth call home.
