Jin Yao Shi "Golden Key" Wu Yi Mountain Rock Oolong Tea
Jin Yao Shi (lit. Golden Key 金钥匙) is a unique Wu Yi varietal. Ours is grown in Wu Yi Gong Shan Qian Village, Mi Tuo Temple (武夷宫山前村弥陀寺) at an elevation of 800 meters.
Jin Yao Shi has been grown for about 100 years by just a few families. Our tea is from one of the two original gardens with leaves being picked from 15 to 60 year old bushes and trees.
Jin Yao Shi is typically processed with a medium level of roasting and ours is a traditional medium roast style. Smooth with a fruity, sweet minerality! We recommend aging this tea in a sealed pouch or air-tight canister for at least 6 months!
