Description

Direct-sourced from the Li Family in Xing Village, this luscious Qilan is thrillingly green and juicy with a tart, lingering aftertaste . . .

We are extremely proud and excited to introduce the Li family of Xing Village through their luscious Qilan varietal Wuyi Oolong. Qilan varietal teas usually have more sweet floral nuance than other Wuyi oolongs. The Li family has roasted this tea with tender care and precision – preserving the greener natural notes of the tea.

The wet leaf aroma is reminiscent of spiced eggnog, and tart like Rhubarb crumble. The early steepings are thrillingly green, juicy and thick like honey. As the tea continues to steep out, the body builds up, and hints at flaky vanilla pastry with the aftertaste of raw cacao nibs or cherry. The honey sweetness grows into a rice milk horchata flavor, and tart plantain aftertaste.
