In the 1980’s tea producers began to take the Eight Immortals bush from Zhao An city in Fujian province to cultivate it in the foothills of the WuYi Mountains. This certified organic tea has a strong sweet floral fragrance that fills the room once brewed. Unlike a subtle flower essence, the character of this tea bush is a concentrated scent with a sharp heavy taste similar to Dan Cong tea. Since it grows in the mineral rich soil it has the strong taste without any bitterness. Great for tea drinkers looking for a strong flavor and high aroma. Drinking this tea is like flying in heaven’s garden hence the name Eight Immortals from the famous Chinese myth.
