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.
Rock Milk or Shi Ru is an extremely rare varietal that the Li Family cultivates on their mist-shaded, mountain spring-fed biodiverse plot within the Wuyi Ecological Preserve. The naturally rocky elements of this tea come through even stronger as they take in the deep minerality of the volcanic rocky soil. As a rare offering, Mr. Li takes the time to bring out the rich mouthwatering lingering yun sensation of this tea through the hand firing at low heat for hours needed to bring out the very best. This varietal is truly a chance to taste the terroir of the region.
