Rou Gui Ma Tou Mr. Liu

Product code: CSTAD-455
Add to my notebook

The Ma Tou (“horse head”) section in Wuyi National Park is known to produce some of the best Rou Gui in the World.

This type of wulong, harvested near the strange rock formation, is amongst the most sought after in China.

This high grade wulong gives a remarkably clean and complex brew, with a true impression of depth. Aromas of caramelized sugar, spices (cinnamon) and a hint of flowers can only barely suggest the warm sensations experienced in tasting.

Easily steeped many times.
