Wu Yi Rock Tea Tasting – Rock Bone and Floral Fragrance, with Juyan Webster

Join our Chinese Tea tutor Juyan Webster to taste four Wuyi Rock Teas freshly sourced from her recent trip to China.

Tuesday 16th July 6pm
Zoom Webinar
Tickets from £30

Included in the ticket price is delivery of 4 teas to taste during the event.

Wu Yi rock tea, also known as Yan Cha, hails from the rugged and scenic Wu Yi Mountain in Fujian Province, China. This oolong tea is famous for Yan Gu Hua Xiang, which translates to “Rock Bone and Floral Fragrance”, to describe its rich flavour, complex aroma, and distinctive mineral notes, a result of the unique terroir of the region’s rocky cliffs.

There are hundreds of tea plant varietals and cultivars planted in rock gaps and surrounded by cliffs and lush vegetation. Distinguishing between the varietals of Wu Yi Oolongs is no easy feat but provides immense enjoyment and exploration for tea enthusiasts.

This tasting session will be a journey through layers of flavour and aroma, each infusion offering new discoveries. It’s a tea that demands attention and rewards the taster with a rich, complex, and deeply satisfying experience.

Included in the ticket price is delivery of 4 teas to taste during the event:

  1. Da Hong Pao (8g)
  2. Tie Luo Han (8g)
  3. Shui Jin Gui (8g)
  4. Rock Orchid (8g)

These teas have been sourced by Juyan personally on her very recent trip to China.
