Rou Gui is one of the most well known rock teas nowadays, and that's why we would rather introduce you to something different -- an aged Rou Gui. Tea comparison is what we always encourage you to try, fresh vs. aged, buds vs. leaf and twigs, and low water temperature vs. high water temperature, etc. We hope this Rou Gui will delight you with its aged notes.
Wu Yi Shan is located in northern Fu Jian province in China and it’s the cradle for the worldwide prestigious Wu Yi Rock Teas. The traditionally processed Wu Yi rock teas tend to be more roasted, and they are famous for their roasting, peanut/nutty, spiced and sometimes floral or mineral taste. Rock tea enthusiasts also talk often about or seek “Yan Yun” 岩韵 in a tea, which means the “Rhythm of Rock”, and it’s an abstract sensation of tea drinkers sensing the energy from the rock from a Wu Yi rock tea.
