Roasted Rock 2017
Made by Mr. Fan, nickname Hunter. Mr. Fan accidentally discovered the mountain full of wild and abandoned tea trees in 2009 while hunting for wild boars that were wreaking havoc for local farmers.
The leaves are handpicked from an old grove of tea trees planted in the 1980’s that have since been abandoned - there is minimal human intervention. The tea is oxidized slightly heavier than other black teas, and roasted over charcoal.
This tea is earthy, slightly smoky, with notes of aged wood.
