This Li Family Reserve offering is hand-picked and meticulously hand-fired for deep complexity. Family proceeds go to teaching Wuyi Tea Ceremony in the community.
This Reserve harvest is picked from older tree stock on choice slopes of the Li Family's tea garden near the Nine Bends river in the Wuyishan National Reserve. Her family carefully hand picks every leaf, using only the best of the harvest for the reserve offering. This tea is hand-finished in bamboo baskets over wood embers to bring out the rich deep flavor. This harvest is a great next step from Big Red Robe in exploring the tingling, cooling sensation of fine Wuyi teas that Li Xiangxi describes as Yun. Only several kilos are produced each year.
