Hundred Winter Daphnes | 白瑞香

Tasting notes: Elegant, fruity, floral

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,. 

Hundred Winter Daphnes is grown near the cliffs of the Hui Yuan Monastery, and has over 100 years of history.

Our Hundred Winter Daphnes is from a women-led tea farm in Wuyishan. Read more here.
