Rou Gui Mituoyan Mr. Wu

Scent of Cassia
Product code: CSTW-102

Mituoyan is located in the Wuyishan National Park (Wuyi Mountains) in China’s Fujian Province, making this Rou Gui a Zheng Yan tea. This specific volcanic terroir, has made its reputation with a style of Wulong teas, known as "rock teas”.

The infusion of its large twists liberates warm notes of bark, spices and roasted nuts. Its lively and fruity (wild raspberry) liquor evolves towards a finish marked by the mildly spicy flavor of Chinese cinnamon, a literal translation of Rou Gui!
