Add to my notebook

Harvested from mature tea plants with roots deeply embedded in the terroir of the Wuyi Mountains, this roasted black wulong offers rich woody and fruity aromas enhanced by its generous presence.

Certainly one of the most recognizable of the Yan Cha (the Wuyi Mountains “rock teas”), its rich caramelized aromas and mineral depth have made it a clear favourite of the region.
