This famous "rock wulong" from Fujian is offered in this version aged for more than twenty years.

Aromas of tobacco, spices and burnt wood from the rinsing of its dark roasted leaves blunt the senses. Its substantial liquor is full and generous, enlivened by its nuances of acid fruits (gooseberry) and cocoa. A tea for a special occasion or simply to brighten up your day's end.

Shui Xian Lao Cong

Harvested from mature tea plants with roots deeply embeded in the terroir of the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian region, this roasted black wulong consists of large, dark and twisted leaves. Its beautiful amber colored infusion offers vegetable aromas of grilled zucchini and nuts. The clear liquor offers rich woody and fruity (strawberry) notes in the mouth, enhanced by a delicate floral presence. A rounded and generous tea to its finish, evocative of barley sugar.

Da Hong Pao Mr Wu

Legendary wulong from the Wuyi mountains of Fujian, it is the most famous of the "rock teas", as they are called. Delicately twisted whole leaves are lightly roasted for a rich full liquor. Its woody aromatic character is expertly enhanced by rich notes of pecans, cocoa and fruits (gooseberry). The experience is deep, leaving a long after-impression in the mouth, delicately tart and sweet - reminiscent of caramel.
