Hundred Winter Daphnes
- Brewing tips
Tasting notes: Toasted, floral, minerally
Origin: Wuyishan, Fujian, China
Cultivar: 奇丹 Qidan
Grown in a pristine UNESCO site, this prized Rock Tea is lightly roasted, allowing its elegant floral fragrance to shine through.
Why we love it:
- It's lighter than most Rock Teas (oolong teas from Wuyishan) with a floral fragrance, hence its name.
- It's harvested from plants that grow on the cliffs of Wuyishan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Fujian, where mountain streams flow over rocky terrain, feeding the soil and the plants with minerals, and giving the tea a distinctive minerally flavour.
- It's charcoal roasted, adding a hint of toastedness without overshadowing its fruit and floral notes.
- It's grown near the cliffs of the Hui Yuan Monastery and produced by a pioneering women-led farm. Meet the farmer.
Wuyishan’s mystic scenery of sheer cliffs, dramatic gorges, and sparkling rivers happens to be ideal for growing tea, as the porous rocks provide the best irrigation system.
Teas from this area are called rock teas (岩茶), and are nourished by mountain streams and mineral-rich soil, giving them a distinctive mineral flavour.
