Wu Yi Rock Tea - San Yang Feng - Rou Gui

Our delicious and sought after San Yang Feng Rou Gui has a bittersweet character but with a more noticeable cinnamon aroma and a softer, deeper character. This San Yang Feng Rou Gui has a rich complexity of flavour, and layers of a cassia bark like aroma and warmed brown sugar notes that develop over multiple infusions. The Rou Gui has a smooth and long-lasting aftertaste. One for your collection.

San Yang Feng Rou Gui is grown in Sang Yang Feng (lit. ‘Three Up Peak’) which is in the central area (known as ‘Zheng Yan’ in Chinese) of Wu Yi Mountain. Zheng Yan refers to the innermost protected area of the Wu Yi Heritage site. This tea is fully hand-picked, processed and then twice baked over charcoal at high heat. After few years of resting, the charcoal heat has been totally disappeared and deepen its taste. It would be a great tea to have if you are searching a complex Rock tea.
