Jin FenghuangTea Varietal

Jin Fenghuang, or Golden Phoenix has a deep rich rocky texture, a satisfying almost granite-like flavor that build up with each steeping. The Li Family cultivates this tea on their rocky volcanic plot within the Wuyi Ecological Preserve, maintaining natural forest cover and biodiversity that lends even more complexity to this tea. The hand picked leaves are personally finished by Mr, Li over a twenty plus hour turning and fluffing process followed by slow careful roasting to bring out the rich fruit and floral notes in this rare varietal.
