Cinnamon Oolong / / Rougui / / 2018

Wuyi Rock Tea or Yancha

Dark Roasted Oolong

From Yan zi ke, Wuyi Mountains, Fujian Province, China.


This tea is organically grown!

This tea has large dark burnt sienna like twisted leaves with greyish tones. The cup is a bright peach colour, with a thick and clean, peachy tea soup. The aroma of the wet leaves when brewing offer a rounded roasted warmth with sweet cinnamon fragrances. To taste, cinnamon and stone fruit sweetness with roasted touches. Superbly crafted tea with long lasting flavour!

Harvested in Spring '18 by the Chen Family. The leaves have then undergone a 4 times medium roasted bake following traditional charcoal roasting techniques, carefully and skilfully processed over June/July '18 in Wuyishan.
