Type: yancha oolong (also known as rock/cliff oolong)
Origin: Wuyi, Fujian, China
肉桂 ‘Rougui’ is cinnamon in English, the warm spice used commonly in your desserts, and in your savory dishes in Chinese cuisine. The ‘rougui’ here is actually sweet cassia.
Uniquely Wuyi is the mineral texture of the tea liquor, as a result of the soil of the surrounding cliffs. As one of the 四大名樅 ’Four Big Famous Bush’ teas, most Yancha you find have a strong smokey and coal flavor profile. This Yancha has gone through a gentle roast.
Scents of wood and dried apricot. If you prefer a mellower Yancha with the fruity notes more pronounced, this would be your choice!
