Li Xiangxi's family works together in Tongmu applying their incredible skill at roasting to their spring-fed high mountain tea. Their proceeds go to teaching rural tea ceremony.
Tie Luohan (or Iron Arhat) is one of the four famous varietals that define Wuyi
oolong teas, making it highly sought after, with true Tie Luohan varietal in low supply. Often, these teas are roasted beyond recognition and sold as Tieluohan, giving the tea an association with dark burnt qualities. The Li Family uses a meticulously slow roast to bring out the varietal’s natural qualities - a balance of minerality, chocolate notes and subtle fruitiness. On the palate, this tea feels even and well-dispersed, hitting every point. As the tea steeps out, we enjoy a roasted marshmallow flavor.
