    • Shui XianTea Varietal

    Li Xiangxi's family has been hand picking and processing tea for generations. Their tea is fed from a mountain spring, with plants between ten and one hundred years old, all grown traditionally without fertilizers or pesticides and picked by hand by the family. This Shui Xian varietal picking really shines with the Li Family's delicate charcoal roasting process to bring out the deep complex forest notes and minerality that make Shui Xian so famous.

  • 'Come, look at this plant. It grows out of the cliffs, reaching for the purest mist, hidden from view. Pick some. Take it with you, and return to the cliffs whenever you need more. It is more valuable than your farm, for it will remind you of this place.” The wild-man disappeared, leaving the farmer alone with the tea plants jutting out of the rocky mountain face.'
