Wuyi Qilan Rock Tea.

This beautiful oolong from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fuijan Province, China, consists of medium oxidized, unrolled amber brown leaf with greenish highlights.

A sophisticated dark amber liquor reveals hints of raisins and toasted almonds. Bold, complex, woody, evocative. A simply outstanding tea. 2013 Lot.

Also known as wu-long - the real thing! Highest grade.

    I received a sample of this in search of a Wuyi to come close to replace another Wuyi I have become quite fond of (Roi Gui) that I am no longer able to get until the 2011 crop comes in.

    While the flavor profile of this is quite different, I have become quite fond of this and seem to smile each time I have some. There is a hint of raisins, deep stone fruit, roasted barley and scotch undertones. I love this tea. It ices great and is one of my new favorites.

    While I am not giving this tea a full, five stars, it is not because I don't believe it was worth every penny, nor that it is disappointing in any way. No, this tea is one of the best Wuyi Oolongs I've tried. But there are some slightly better samplings available. I actually happen to like the very similar Shui Xian a bit better.

    I was actually looking for the ever mysterious Da Hong Pao, which is my very favorite tea, and was told this was either the same tea misnamed, or the closest Zhi carries to it. And it sure comes from the same family at least, and didn't disappoint, but it is not up to some of the pricier Da Hong Pao in terms of complexity.

    A great everyday Oolong, and an excellent Wuyi tea, I would recommend this to anyone who loves Wuyi teas!

    Full flavored oolong. Very easy to drink. I can steep it easily three times without losing any flavor.
    I have tried several Wuyi Oolong teas and this is my favorite and is very reasonably priced. I also got my tea in Maryland in three days from when I ordered it! Now that is awesome. Thank you Zhi tea. I have told all my tea loving friends about you guys.

    This is my new favorite oolong, by far and away. Wuyi by any other name is simply the easiest and most satisfying oolong to drink. Love, love, love it. Totally addicted. I guess I love it in part because it is hearty but smooooth. I agree with the other gals there is a cheerios thing going on, in a good way! Love the Wuyi! Woo-Yee!

    Honestly, it's hard to beat this Oolong. I drink my weight in Oolong every day, I've tried nearly every Zhi Tea offering, and I keep coming back to this one. Its nutty, toasted, cheerios-in-a-mug flavor never gets old.

    After getting totally ripped off by the fake wuyi crap out there, I have finally found what I am looking for. A full leaf rock tea from the Wu Yi Mountains in China. TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY AWESOME.

    I liked the 2007 better. It had more comlexity and smokiness. But this is still quite good.

    I also bought this a weight loss tea, my naturopath suggested it. I was skeptical. I thought it would taste like dirt (it doesn't) and I thought it wouldn't do anything (wrong!). It tastes so good, I drink it all day long. I have less of an appetite and I have lost 7 pounds in a month. Of course, I have been excercising (a bit), and eating write (mostly). Whatever, I feel this tea is helping and it got me off of diet cokes!!

Water: 200°F | Leaves: 1 Tbsp per 12 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be resteeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
