Wang Yanxin is a fierce advocate for small family farming, working with her farmer friends to develop entirely new kinds of tea and help them establish cooperatives
This exquisite offering from Wang Yanxin combines the very best of two of our favorite teas- Yunnan White Jasmine and Golden Fleece. Huge buds are picked from Yunnan Da Ba, a varietal normally used for white tea. These buds are allowed to fully oxidize into black tea, but during oxidation and drying, wild jasmine blossom are strewn among the buds, allowing the natural aroma of the jasmine to absorb over several days into the tea itself. The old craft of true jasmine scenting is a slow laborious process, but the results are worth it. This tea is as rich and sweet as Golden Fleece and as luscious as Jasmine.
