High Roast Water Curtain Cave Rou Gui

Regular price $30.00

My search for high roasted teas led me to commission a batch myself. 

The maker is my oldest Wuyi Shan connect, Mr. Wu. He specializes in Rou Gui and has made quiet a name for himself. Two years ago I had an amazing Water Curtain Cave from him, but in the following two years the roast hasn't been the same. This led me to place the minimum order for a commissioned high roast batch. It took him two extra roasting to reach this level, but it really is something special.

The roast is high, showing notes of dark cherry and red wine. This tea maintains a smoothness to it while having the body and mouth feel of a full roast. This due to the full but even roast, the maker and I agree this tea will age really well.
