No other yancha, rock tea, can match the warm complexity of Rougui. The mouth-filling minerality, which is typical of its terroir, is enriched by an intense roasted flavour that lingers in the aftertaste.
The name Rougui, literally cinnamon, immediately recalls to the mind, and to the palate, the spicy cinnamon notes of its liquor, with sweet hints of caramel and sandalwood.
