Oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian province of China.
Wuyi Oolong grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountainous rock, rendering cultivation both arduous and spellbindingly beautiful. This tea is famous for its 'dragonfly's head, frog's limbs and three colors.' The latter refers to the green, red and brown colors found in the cross-section of each leaf. Similar to other fine oolong teas, our 'Wuyi Oolong' may be infused a number of times, with each infusion revealing a new nuance of this tea's complex flavor.
Wuyi Mountains are found in the north-western part of the Fujian province of China. They are a collection of jagged-edged peaks, nearly always blanketed in clouds and fog. It is here, between the rocks, that grows one of China's more famous teas. A Royal Tea Garden was established here as early as the Yuan Dynasty, with each harvest offered in tribute to the Emperor. And from the time of the Ming Dynasty, this tea was being exported abroad. It continues to be in much demand outside China, with many fans among the British royal family.
