Banyan 半岩 literally means “middle rock”, and refers to the position of the tea trees, that grow on rocks situated at the outskirts of Wuyishan park, as opposed to Zhengyan 正岩, the trees growing in the very heart of Wuyishan, and Zhoucha 州茶, growing far away from the park. 

Banyan area keeps the peculiar minerality of yancha, rock teas, but it is here much milder and enriched by a great botanic diversity: gardenias, magnolias, and dahlias mingle with fruity notes of ripe peaches and apricots. This surprising complexity is also due to the fact that the tea plants do not only grow among rocks, but they often share the rich soil with fruit trees, absorbing their nutrients.

Rougui is one of the most famous cultivars, thanks to its iconic spicy note that reminds the sweetness of cinnamon, which gives it its Chinese name. This Banyan Rougui is the perfect tea for those who wish to be charmed by the world of rock teas, waiting to venture closer to the core of Wuyishan park.
