Aroma/Color/Taste:  Wow!  This black tea's evocative, fruity, sweet fragrance awakens your senses as it compels you to taste.  Fruity with a soft smokiness and full of flavor.  It is sweet, pure, clean and soothing.  

In Wuyi Mountain, where it grows, it is called Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong.  It is also known as the "The Queen's Tea" of England, and is a true Lapsang Souchong (black tea).  

This tea is hand picked from a tea tree that has been growing wild for over 100 years.  It is a limited production tea, definitely not commercial grade.   It will delight you with an exuberant feeling as it revitalizes your being and rejuvenates your spirit.  

Location:  Growing wild in the upper inner circle of Wuyi Mountain on the protected side, where tourism is restricted and all wild life is protected.  Only those who live on that land have access to this wild tea.  Wuyi Mountain is in the northwest of Fujian Province in  southeast China.

Made by: Tea Master Xu brings us this tea, lovingly and respectfully roasted to deliver this sweet full flavor. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first brew to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final brews.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot or gaiwan, and spring or filtered water.  

Our teas are packed and shipped with eco friendly packaging.
