This wondrful harvest is made from tiny, delicate leaves and buds. While normally larger leaves are used for Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, this naturally floral (hua xiang) mixture yields a beautiful deep bourbon-red brew and a fruity floral aroma that holds nothing back.

Li Xiangxi takes a break from hiking in the mountains above her family's workshop in Tongmu
" The first sips give us the deep textural bite and mineral flavor of a Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong with the delicate perfumed florals and fruit of a Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong. This tea is big bodied, bold and full. It holds nothing back. As the tea continues to steep, it settles into a beautiful, balanced texture forward minerality that dissipates into juicy citrus notes.... "
