Rou GuiTea Varietal

While the Li Family often makes a point to stand against heavy roast processing when it takes away from the natural flavor of a varietal, they make an exception for Rou Gui. Because Rou Gui is so naturally spicy, a slow, careful and thorough charcoal roast brings out the spice and blends it with the minerality of the soil. This Rou Gui is the darkest roast Li Xiangxi offers and it shows off her family's award-winning skill in their finishing.

This tea is pre-packed in individual 5g packets for sizes under 100g.
