    Rocky, sparkling and caramelly - the  new 2021 harvest is here!

    Bei Dou is named after the constellation the “Plow,” or the Big Dipper. This tea is most similar to Big Red Robe in terms of big bold flavor and deep resonant texture. The Li Family’s Bei Dou varietal is planted on a cool slope of volcanic rock for a deep minerality. Mr. Li’s insistence on long meticulous yaoqing turning and fluffing bring out big floral and fruit notes in this rare but tremendous offering.


  • 'The Wuyishan Ecological Preserve was shaped by ancient volcanoes, giving it a mix of extremely rocky and sandy soil. This soil contributes to the flavor of the region’s tea though regulating water drainage and encouraging deeper roots, as well as through its mineral-rich mix of nutrients the tea absorbs as it grows.'
