Rock teas, in Chinese 岩茶 Yancha, are wulong teas that grow in the very heart of Wuyishan park, Fujian province.
This is a very humid area, whose main feature lies in its steep rocky hills: this kind of soil was praised by Lu Yu during Tang dynasty (618-907) as the most suitable to grow tea.
Rhymes of flavors
Wuyishan tea trees, and Fujian tea trees in general, are notably smaller than those of Yunnan. These bushes dig their roots in the rich rocky soils, and the hot sun rays warm the leaves during daytime, allowing them to absorb a peculiar mineral note, in Chinese 岩韵 Yanyun. Each rock tea has its own specific minerality, which can be intense and daring in the mouth, smooth and hidden in the aftertaste, or lingering in the palate and accompanied by a surprising floral bouquet.
