Bei DouTea Varietal

Bei Dou is named after the constellation the “Plow,” or the Big Dipper. This tea is most similar to Big Red Robe in terms of big bold flavor and deep resonant texture. The Li Family’s Bei Dou varietal is planted on a cool slope of volcanic rock for a deep minerality. Mr. Li’s insistence on long meticulous yaoqing turning and fluffing bring out big floral and fruit notes in this rare but tremendous offering.
