Rougui Grand (肉桂, cinnamon) is a type of rocktea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. Its basic character is quite similar to the junior edition: strong chaqi (茶氣, tea energy), fiery ambiance, sweet aftertaste. However, while the other one’s virtue lies in its strength, this tea excels in having an exceptional silkiness. The Rougui Grand has an astonishingly flowery, almost dancong-like frangrance which beautifully complements its spicy notes.

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.
