Qi LanTea Varietal

This reserve-level Qilan is given an even longer more delicate hand-turning yaoqing craft, and several rounds of labor-intensive hand-firing to bring out the most intense and complex aromatics and texture from this striking varietal. The result is a tingling cooling yun-forward oolong. Qilan varieties is almost legendary for its deep luscious orchid notes and its subtle incense spice. The Li Family cultivates established 40+ year Qilan bushes on their rocky volcanic mountainside plot in the Wuyishan Ecological Preserve, letting the tea build complexity through biodiverse plantings, and carefully preserved natural forest cover.
