Xingcun XiaozhongTea Varietal

Jin Jun Mei Wuyi black tea is one of the most labor intensive and demanding teas to produce. The picking window is so small and the skill required so high, that every experienced farmer in the Xingcun works together to pick Jin Jun Mei buds for each other over the first weeks of spring. Li Xiangxi's spring-fed tea grows straight out of the rocks, yielding a rich mineral flavor true to Wuyishan's unique terroir.

Wild tea plants in Tongmu
" The pristine beauty of Wuyi, the biodiversity of the valleys, the sweetness of the water, the deep devotion of the farmers like Li Xiangxi and her family – for us, tea has always been about connecting with places, people, and history, but Wuyi is a life affirming confirmation of everything there is to love about the humble camellia sinensis plant....
