Wild Wuyi Lapsang / / Unsmoked / / 2019

Black/Red Tea

From Tong mu guan, Wuyi Mountains, Fujian Province, China.


This tea is organically grown!

This tea is from the Inner Tong Mu Village area, within the Wuyi region, the home and origin of lapsang as a style of red tea. Large dark twisted leaves with greyish brown hues of a thicker quality and uniform size, due to a later picking than other lapsangs. The wet leaves give sweet aromas, revealing golden tones to the leaf. A quality thick and bright tea soup, orange in colour. Giving sweet aromas and natural peach flavours with sweet malty touches and natural milky tones. Long lasting flavours with no astringency, good through many infusions, up to 10 infusions brewed Gong Fu Style!

One bud and two leaves standard picking. Harvested in Spring '19 from wild tea trees within the area by the Chen Family using traditional unsmoked methods, carefully and skilfully processed retaining natural aromas.
