Description

Mei Zhan (梅占) is a medium roasted rock-tea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. With its intensive fragrance of prunes, it stands out from other varieties in the region. It has a mild, slightly sweet floral taste with notes of fresh plums. It has surprisingly smooth and long-lasting aftertaste.

Wuyi teas have a two major idiosyncrasies: First, they are plucked only during Spring, and second, they are baked multiple times: a half year after the harvest time, then once again a year later.

The Wuyi Mountains is situated in Fujian Province, China. With it’s more than a thousand-year-old history of tea cultivation, and approximate 200 different subgene of the tea plant, Camelia sinensis, the area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain’s volcanic nature reappears in the character of the tea: fiery, vitalising ambiance and strong chaqi.
