This tea is part of Li Xiangxi's Reserve Collection, selected by her family to best represent the heritage of Wuyishan.
Sparrow's Tongue, or Que She is named after the shorter, smaller leaves of this distinctive and uncommon Wuyi tea varietal. Sipping Que She is a strong example of "Yun": each infusion brings out more and more of an almost electrical tingling sensation on the tongue and back of the throat. The early infusions are bright with notes of candied pomelo peel and lemongrass. The texture builds with a thickness that is reminiscent in an unexpected way of buddy Jin Jun Mei. A thick pastry-like savory / sweet element adds to the citrus, while notes of juniper tie in the tingling and deep "Yun".
