Rougui (肉桂, cinnamon) is a type of rocktea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. Along with  the usual fiery wulong flavours, a spicy sweetness relies in the tea, that later turns into long-lasting nutty aftertaste. Besides the rock teas’ strong chaqi (茶氣, tea energy) the relatively high caffeine content contributes to the joyful vitalizing effect that this tea has on the body.

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 teacultivation, and approximate 200 different subgenera of the teaplant, Camelia sinensis, the area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain’s vulcanic nature reappears in the character of the tea: fiery, vitalizing ambiance and strong chaqi.
