Wang Yanxin has been working with farmers in Yiwu for over fifteen years. She has recently partnered with the Najiao Farmer’s Cooperative to offer this extraordinary example of Yiwu’s trademark zhang xiang, the camphor-like cooling flavor that the tea picks up from such a high elevation biodiverse environment. The loose compression was expertly handled by Tian Long Tea Co, giving the tea enough circulation for even aging and easy breaking when it comes time to drink. Wang Yanxin has been able to age this tea out seven years to bring out rich sandalwood spice and forest flavors.
