This tea is uniquely crisp and floral with strong notes of geranium. The first sips reveal a forward, juicy melon flavor followed by deep amber and foresty redwood.

" Wuyi is legendary. Any great Chinese art collection will be full of inkbrush paintings of the misty mountain peaks that make up Wuyi. Visiting Wuyi evokes the feeling of finally meeting someone that you have read about for years. The rocks of Wuyi aren’t just famous for the inspiration they gave to great Song dynasty painters. The true legends involve magic, and of course, Wuyi tea.... "
