悟源涧 铁罗汉 "Wu Yuan Jian Iron Monk"
Tie Luo Han is a classic varietal, one of Wuyi Mountain's four celebrated tea bushes, and hails from the lauded San Keng Liang Jian. Here, in this hallowed 7.6km stretch of "Three Caves and Two Mountain Streams"--comprising Hui Yan Keng, Niu Lan Keng, Daoshui Keng, and the two mountain streams, Liu Xiang Jian, and Wu Yuan Jian--the most coveted teas are grown. This distinctive terroir bestows its tea with a creamy taste and beguiling cooling effect similar to peppermint and camphor, offering infinite nuances to explore with every sip.
Since 2017, the workshop of Ye Qitong, a renowned Intangible Cultural Tea Master, has been carefully crafting our Wu Yi Yan Cha. Ye Qitong selects the best varietals grown in Wu Yi Shan ravine, resulting in Cliff Rock Oolongs, among the finest in China. These teas are distinguished by the age of their trees and expert use of charcoal-firing techniques.
