This is a relatively new tea from one of our favorite tea producing regions, Wuyi, Fujian. Developed around 2003, ours is a 2017 harvest that is absolutely delightful. If tea could tell stories (and we assure you it does), this would be a young woman with long flowing golden locks, happily skipping along the water's edge at the beach.
