    The new 2022 spring harvest is here!

    Li Xiaoping grows this true Dragonwell cultivar on a perfectly-shaded mountainside in the tiny and sought-after Shi Feng microclimate- a uniquely situated spot with sweet mountain springs, quartz-heavy rocky soil, and mist. Li Xiaoping is a celebrated community leader for her advocacy in sustainable farming and working to protect the Shi Feng region, and her tea is recognized across the world as one of the few true Dragonwell expressions out there, capturing deep minerality, persistent sweetness, and complex aromatics.

  • "Typically, the prized pre-Qingming picking doesn’t happen until mid to late March, so this year's harvests mark an incredible year, with unique weather that Li Xiaoping says made for sweet, rich, aromatic tea."
