The Li Family hand picks high-elevation spring-fed tea from their misty plot in the Wuyi Ecological Preserve. Their biodiverse plantings, and careful hand-finishing win them awards year after year.
Ban Tian Yao is unique among the Li Family's collection of Wuyi oolongs. Its uncommon flavor if full of bright, tart, fruity notes sets it apart from the more traditionally dark and savory offerings. After a 24 hour withering and oxidizing process, this tea was hand-fired over another 16 hours and allowed to rest a full month before release. Tart berry, sweet hibiscus, and flavorful raspberry or green apple is supported by roasted hazelnut, caramel, mellow cocoa - all together, this one-of-a-kind tea puts us in the mood for bright, sunny days and the great outdoors.
