Imperial Wuyi Yan Cha
Imperial Wuyi Yan Cha


According to written records, teas have been produced in Fujian Province for well over 1,600 years. The region currently produces five different categories of tea most of which originated in the province.

Imperial Wuyi Yan Cha*:

Like most mountain folks, the people of Wuyi Shan are straight-forward and no-nonsense, they like their foods and teas to be strong and full spirited. Their attitude in life is not unlike their food: no beating around the bush for these great southern mountaineers. This marvelous tea is harvested in the center of Wuyi Shan's tea growing region (a total territory of approximately 60 kilometers, only teas grown in this territory are considered Zheng Yan Cha, or authentic Wuyi Tea).

Just like the people of Wuyi Shan, there's no hiding the fruity, full-body flavors and the straight-ahead, mature florals that announce themselves immediately, and the finish is so long and intense that it seems to last for hours. For an authentic Wuyi Shan experience we recommend short brewing time in near boiling water with lot of leaves in your gaiwan.

For Imperial Wuyi Yan Cha we recommend individual gaiwans (steeping cups) in order to bring out the fullest aroma and flavor. Allow approximately 5-6 grams of leaf per person and infuse with near-boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Re-steep 3-4 times, gradually increasing infusion time and temperature.
