Explore the famous Tea Region of Anxi with our Spring 2020 Anxi Oolong Tea Sampler. Taste a curated selection of samples from the 2020 Spring Harvest and develop an appreciation for the distinct aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of these amazing teas.
Anxi is a famous tea producing region near the coast in southern Fujian Province of China. Oolong tea plants are ubiquitous throughout the countryside and grow abundantly in the fertile soil. Harvesting occurs mainly in the Spring and Autumn. After picking the tea it goes through elaborate processing involving withering, tossing, and rolling. Depending on the intention of the producer these teas can also be roasted. There are light, medium, and heavy styles of roasting and all have a market among tea lovers. As a result of modern demands, the teas produced tend to be much less roasted and much more green, floral and sweet. Major tea types from Anxi include the famous tieguanyin 铁观音, and the lesser known mao xie 毛蟹 and ben shan 本山 oolongs as well as huang jin gui 黄金桂 and the newly developed jinguanyin 金观音. For over 10 years we have been working with family farmers who have been growing and making tea for many generations in the Anxi region. Taste from our comprehensive offering of Anxi teas and experience the breadth of flavors from nectar sweet, to toasted nuttiness. These are a treat!
