Harvested in 2022, the black tea leaves are handpicked, withered, bruised and dried to bring out the complex flavour profiles in the leaf. The result is a beautifully balanced black tea with notes of fig and cocoa, that reflects the unique terroir of the high mountain, biodiverse tea garden.
The Wang Family Tea garden is nestled in the high mountain Shanlin Xi tea growing area and is surrounded by wild bamboo forest. The land was previously unused and home only to wild vegetation, which means the soil has never been exposed to chemical treatments of any kind.
