TEA ORIGIN

 Mr. Xu’s tea garden in Wu Yi Mountain, Fujian Province, China

TEA BUSH

Camellia Sinensis Sinenesis, Qi Zhong Cultivars

HARVEST TIME AND PROCESSING

Early May. 1 young shoot with 2 opened leaves were hand-picked, fully oxidized and then dried over charcoal heat.

TASTING NOTES

Complex, strong floral aroma of a bouquet of wild flowers and fruity sweetness with a lingering aftertaste.  

DESCRIPTION

Qi Zhong literally means “strange cultivars”, which is the term for a mixture of indigenous varietals growing in a same tea garden.  The farmers harvested leaves altogether which creates a natural blend of teas that offers intensity and complexity of profile unparalleled by single varietals. The tea garden locates in the deep inside of Wu Yi mountain range at about 1500 meter high. The higher altitude allows the tea bushes to grow slower and absorbing more mineral and nutrition from the ground.
