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.
Dan Gui is a relatively new hybrid, famous across China for its big, red osmanthus (dan gui) aromatics. While it has been used for rolled oolong and green tea, it is most well known as a strip-style Wuyi oolong. The Li family's traditional Wuyi hand-fired finish brings out the full bodied gripping texture of Dan Gui, while allowing the bright florals to shine through in the lingering aftertaste. The biodiversity of their well-forested mountainous plot in the Wuyi Ecological Preserve allows deep incense aroma and spice to accent the osmanthus florals in this striking offering.
