    This tea comes from a small village near the western Zhejiang province, very close to Huang Shan (Anhui Province).  There is no road access to this village; you must climb a small mountain path for 20 minutes to reach your destination.  

    Octogenarian Mr. Wen XinZhou is the elder in charge of the tea gardens.  Many of the tea trees have been there since he has memory; a few were planted two decades ago. 

    This high mountain black tea is produced with a cultivar very similar to 小种, famous in Fujian for the smoky Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong) tea.  Unlike its Fujian cousin, this tea is not smoked.

    This is a fruity, mellow yet rich tea, with very low astringency.  With small, hand-picked leaves, it can be brewed both in a small Chinese style teapot or on a drip filter (e.g. Kalita Japanese coffee dripper).
