HARVEST: Spring, 2022


This tea is one of a kind. True ceremonial tea requires a special attitude and teaware to appreciate all the nuances. I hope you have a Yixing teapot, or at least a gaiwan, to do it properly. I recommend following all Gongfu Cha steps to appreciate all the nuances. It's worth it to use quality water and boil it over the fire.

Grown in rocky terrain with unique soil and climate, these matured tea leaves can give a very special taste. Don't hurry and enjoy the aroma as well as the beauty of the whole tea leaf. Woody, smoky, and nutty aroma with bakery notes. Very delicate and gentle fragrance hard to describe.

Wuyishan is an ideal place to grow tea. The volcanic limestone soil in the mountains of WuYi contains the perfect combination of minerals and the deposits necessary for growing tea bushes, as well as the indispensable sun and rain. But one thing is scientific information about the soil and the environment, another is the almost tangible power of the spirit of the Wuyishan mountains.
WuYi has been a place of religious concentration for over a thousand years. For Taoists, Buddhists, and Confucian WuYi continue to be the most important place to stay. The excellent and incomparable soil, climate, and energy of the WuYi mountains are reflected in the taste and aroma of rock tea. "The magnificence of the WuYi mountains - cliffs, flowers, a crystal river, the earth, the sky, and the divine spirit - so naturally and neatly unfolds in a cup of good rock wulong".

High-quality raw material and the mastery of a tea master create an incredibly complex and intense flavour that makes this tea one of a kind. Usually, this type of cultivar is processed with a lower fermentation level which makes this exact tea quite rare. Strong, sweet, and intense aroma welcomes you as soon as you make a first contact. Chocolate, woody, floral aroma with berry and sugary notes. After warming up tea leaves aroma develops into sweet, bakery, and nutty nuances. Rinsed tea leaves change into fruity, honey with a little bit of smoky fragrance. The taste is mellow and smooth with a deep, complex, mineral character. Sweet and multifaceted, with an unforgettible Rock Melody in a long-lasting aftertaste. Aroma cup full of sugary sweetness, berries, and flowers.
