XINGCUN XIAOZHONGTea Varietal

Xingcun Xiaozhong varietal tea in Wuyishan can produce black and gold buds. While the golden bud expression has been encouraged through cultivation for its stunning color, Li Xiangxi and her family often prefer the depth and complexity of black buds. This tea still uses the same tiny buds and the same meticulous hand-picking as their golden buds Jin Jun Mei, but with a more spiced and savory flavor profile.

This tea is pre-packed in individual 5g packets for sizes under 100g.

Li Xiangxi also recommends


" The aroma is creamy, yeasty and buttery like a fresh croissant out of the oven. As the tea infuses we get more fruity pineapple undertones and a vegetal watercress texture. Throughout steeping this tea is packed full of the rocky mineral flavor that we love in Wuyi teas.... "
