Wuyi Jin Guan Yin is a new type of Wuyi rock tea, and it has recently been gaining more popularity in China due to its fresh flavour and long aftertaste. Like other Wuyi rock teas, it comes from the Wuyi Mountains in the North-West of Fujian Province, China. The rock teas (or Yan Cha in Chinese) are famous for their mineral character that comes from growing in the rocky soil of Wuyi Mountains.

Wuyi Jin Guan Yun is characterised by a new tea cultivar and a shorter charcoal roasting process, resulting in a fresher and brisker flavour than most Wuyi oolongs. The colour of the infusion is golden orange, and it has a savoury scent of roasted vegetables, salted nuts and raisins. Wuyi Jin Guan Yun tastes less smoky than most Wuyi oolongs, but it has a rich mineral character and a mild sweetness of cooked fruits. This Wuyi oolong reveals more of the natural flavour of the tea leaves before they are roasted – floral, vegetal and slightly astringent. Long lasting aftertaste is another quality of Wuyi Jin Guan Yin.

This is an excellent tea for explorers and tea drinkers who wish to broaden their knowledge of Wuyi rock oolongs, as well as those who are not that keen on the smokiness of other Wuyi teas.

Our Wuyi oolongs are prepared by the Master Wu family. We’ve chosen this tea producer because of their highly skilled and authentic technique and the many years of experience in tea production.
