This beautiful and most desirable rock tea (yancha in Chinese) is obtained through a very peculiar process, like the greater proportion of the valuable teas from Wuyishan park: its leaves are properly coal-baked by the care of skilled tea masters in bamboo containers. The latter add a special smoky aftertaste that lingers in the palate and in the cup, reaching the upmost perfection. The natural rocky aroma of this wulong tea is warm and smooth, and enriched by sweet-scented hints of ripe yellow fruits.

As its Chinese name suggests, the infusion has a golden liquor (jīn 金) that shines of bright hues, and the leaves open in the hot water like petals of a blooming peony (mǔdān 牡丹).

Origin: Wuyishan, Fujian province
Flush: Spring 2020
Storage: the leaves can be stored in their original package or in ceramic vases. Avoid heat, light, and moisture.
