Shui Xian Hui Yuan Keng | Collection Box

Product code: CSTAD-579

Here is a grand cru from China’s Wuyi Mountain National Park, one of the World’s finest Wulong terroirs due to the quality of its volcanic soil and favourable microclimate. The artisanal expertise of Mr.Wu brings us this Zheng Yan Cha from the old plants of the protected section of the garden (Hui Yuan Keng).

The leaves, once rinsed, release contrasting notes of passion fruit, black chocolate and coffee, reflecting the organoleptic complexity we expect from this calibre of tea from this region.

The beautiful, copper-coloured liquor presents intoxicating flavours of ripe strawberry and maple sugar, juxtaposed with light woodsy (incense) and empyreumatic notes.

A smooth and clean texture perfectly compliments the accents of roasting and the mineral quality typical to this style of Wulong.

Generous and balanced a precious gift that keep on giving.
