From Seven Cups

WuYi mountain is famous for having many hundreds of named tea bush varieties. This tea bush was unknown with a unique character, so it’s name came from “qi” which means “surprised”, or “special and new” while “zhong” refers to “variety”. This certified organic tea grows wild in the Lapsang Nature Reserve of the WuYi Mountains. Qi Zhong is processed and roasted in the traditional oolong way but the flavor is smoother and less dry than other rock oolong tea. Take time to appreciate the pure clean feeling and light sweet aftertaste that is unique to this tea bush.

Aroma of dry leaf is sweet and chocolaty. Liquor is a light peachy gold. When steeped aroma is light and fruity. Tastes soft and clean, light minerality, sweet tang.

This is clean and fresh. Delicious! The kind of tea I could gladly sip on all day.
