    Wild Tongmu Jin Jun Mei is an experience unlike any other black tea. This is a very quiet and very contemplative tasting experience. Li Xiangxi and her family normally only pick this tea by commission because it is so difficult to produce. We were lucky enough to be in Tongmu just a few days before picking and were able to commission a half kilo of this tea. Li Xiangxi wanted to share this tea because it is the clearest, most perfect expression of the flavor of her family’s mountain plot in Tongmu. It is an unmatched textural experience that evokes the mountain spring water, dramatic rocks, and bamboo forest.


  • 'The pristine beauty of Wuyi, the biodiversity of the valleys, the sweetness of the water, the deep devotion of the farmers like Li Xiangxi and her family – for us, tea has always been about connecting with places, people, and history, but Wuyi is a life affirming confirmation of everything there is to love about the humble camellia sinensis plant.'
