 Meet the farmer

An entry-level rock tea, Hundred Winter Daphnes is lighter and less minerally than other rock teas from Wuyishan. Named after its memorable fragrance, it makes for an elegant yet full-bodied brew. It is charcoal-roasted only once, which helps showcase its natural fruit and floral notes. 

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 yan cha), and are nourished by mountain streams and mineral-rich soil, giving them a distinctive mineral flavour.

Our Hundred Winter Daphnes is grown near the cliffs of the Hui Yuan Monastery and produced by a pioneering women-led farm that also makes our Da Hong Pao (Fruit Scent) rock tea.

As a roasted oolong, we find that Hundred Winter Daphnes shines with temperatures between 95°C and 98°C.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
