We are very excited to be able to offer a tea of this caliber! This tea won First Place for Shui Xian in the 2019 Wuyishan Tea Competition, out of over 1,800 entries. This tea was grown in the Zheng Yan ("true cliff") core area of Wuyishan, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was made by Chen Zhen Ying, who is the Deputy Director of the Wuyishan Tea Research Institute, and expertly roasted by Gao Peng, who won the Yan Cha Grand Prize in 2018.
There is an incredible aroma and sweetness, with a soft mouthfeel and Hui Gan (lingering sweetness) that remains on the palate long after the tea has been swallowed. The roast is perfectly integrated, and never overpowers. An all-around excellent Competition winning tea!
