Mei ZhanTea Varietal

Mei Zhan varietal is rich and bold. The aromatics fill an entire room when steeping. Li Xiangxi and her brother were especially excited to share this as a part of their autumn collection, as their subtle charcoal roasting brings out the best in this tea. The balance of fruit and florals places this tea close to Qilan in terms of aromatics, but darker and more grounded like Big Red Robe. The nectarine juiciness, and hibiscus undertones give Mei Zhan a unique place in the Wuyi collection.

" 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.... "
