Mei Zhan rock tea
Discover the exquisite Mei Zhan rock tea, a rare gem originating from Anxi and now also cultivated in the revered Wuyi Mountains. The unique terroir of these mountains elevates Mei Zhan rock tea to an exceptional level, promising a tea experience that’s truly unforgettable.
Nestled in nearly inaccessible terrain, industrial production of this tea is virtually impossible, preserving its traditional hand-harvested essence. The manufacturer also produces out of conviction organic teas, a practice encouraged by the government to maintain the natural integrity of Wuyi Shan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Wuyi Mountain range, soaring between 200 to 2058 meters, boasts a gentle climate with an average temperature of 21°C, ideal for cultivating our distinct tea.
Wuyi Yan Cha
The art of tea production in Wuyi is steeped in a millennium of tradition, with ancestral wisdom passed down through generations. This particular variety is cultivated by the Chen family of Wuyi Shan, who, with centuries of knowledge, process it into an unparalleled class of Oolong. It’s no surprise that the Chen family’s teas recently clinched the top two positions in the Wuyi Yan Cha Championships, with their Rou Gui and Shui Xian varieties.
Charcoal roasted tea
In keeping with tradition, the Chen family employs time-honored techniques in tea production. The leaves for our Mei Zhan rock tea are carefully dried and withered on bamboo trays before being masterfully roasted over a charcoal fire in bamboo baskets.
The intense roasting process, more robust than that of Taiwanese Oolong, imparts a durability to this Wuyi Yancha, making it a perfect choice for connoisseurs who appreciate aging and maturing fine teas to perfection.
