Prime of Wuyi Pedigrees:
Through years of researches a fine cultivar carrying the best traits of all the finest Wuyi natural cultivars is now mature and producing. Introducing Tea Hong’s Sacred Lily. Perhaps the most beautiful of all Wuyi oolongs. Grown deep in the steep mountains away from the touristy spots and masterfully processed for subtlety, complexity, and smoothness in taste.

Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Cleansing fresh sweet wood aroma with accents of cinnamon and Chinese sacred lily (Narcissus tazetta, Shuixian). Hints of citrus peel. Smooth, malty infusion carried through with a cooling sensation between the teeth and an underlying woodsy tone. Soothing, round body accented with touches of cinnamon, citrus peel and Chinese licorice root. Long, malty sweet aftertaste and cooling aftereffect at the teeth, the tongue and the throat.
For optimal results infuse at 90°C for longer durations or 95°C for shorter ones. A great selection for experimenting various gongfu techniques for different taste effects. Repeat infusion to get all the tea from the leaves. Too good to waste.
