Not to be confused with Wuyi Rock Tea from mainland China, this is a Taiwanese oolong that bears the name of the cultivar's origin, while embodying the characteristics of the culture that has shaped it. The loosely held pebbles are dark in appearance, suggesting a fair amount of oxidation before it was roasted over a medium fire. The result is a mellowed out version of those high mountain oolongs, like our Li Shan Light, where the liveliness and exuberance has taken an autumnal turn. It ushers in the aromas of late summer marigold, custard, and a musky tropical fruit warmed by the sun, the latter offering a pleasant complement to the oily texture for a lasting impression.

For best results in gongfu cha, brew in the traditional gaiwan or in a Yixing teapot. Too high water temperature would burn the leaves, resulting in bitter taste.
