    • Jin FenghuangTea Varietal

    Jin Fenghuang, or Golden Phoenix has a deep rich rocky texture, a satisfying almost granite-like flavor that build up with each steeping. The Li Family cultivates this tea on their rocky volcanic plot within the Wuyi Ecological Preserve, maintaining natural forest cover and biodiversity that lends even more complexity to this tea. The hand picked leaves are personally finished by Mr, Li over a twenty plus hour turning and fluffing process followed by slow careful roasting to bring out the rich fruit and floral notes in this rare varietal.


  • '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.'
