Jiu Long Ke Ban Tian Yao (North Fujian)

$32.00

Currently in the Chinese marketplace, the most highly sought after Wuyi Mountain teas come from the Jiu Long Ke growing area. Jiu Long Ke, which means 9 Dragon Nest in English, is one of, if not the most prized growing area in the Wuyi Mountains. The Jiu long Ke growing area is home to the original Da Hong Pao trees. With unique soil and growing conditions, this tea has an incredibly sweet and refined flavor with the classic Wuyi Mountain "rock rhyme". Jiu Long Ke Ban Tian Yao's flavor profile yields hidden notes of orange peel with just the right amount of baking (which enhances its natural aromas and flavors). With a strong, sweet resonating aftertaste, it’s silky and full in the mouth and is a world class tea drinking experience. Currently, Jiu Long Ke Yan Cha is the pinnacle of the prized Zhengyan or middle mountain growing area teas.  We are proud to be the first to offer this exceptional and rare tea in the Western Markets! This tea is available in 8.0 gram bags.
