    Strong dark Rou Gui, big rush of cherry skin and hot slate minerality on the finish. Such a cozy charcoal warmth.

Bold yet balanced Rou Gui from the Swallows Nest field in Wuyi. This Yan Cha is rich in all we love in a Rock tea - sugars, chocolate, red fruits and spices.

Rou Gui is one of Wuyi's most famous cultivars with over 200 years of history. It is often used to make Da Hong Pao and can range in price from affordable to eye-watering. It is a cultivar well known for its potent, sweet and spicy aromatics.

This Rou Gui has the well-known profile of an excellent Yan Cha, whisky, raisins, cinnamon and burnt sugar but it also has a very chocolatey nose which raises it to another level. It is balanced with depth and brightness to make it a stand out tea to wow most palates.

The texture of this tea is softer and smoother than most Yan Cha so if you are looking for Rock Oolong with a little extra velvetiness and less of that mineral quench then this warm, chocolatey, spicy indulgence is the one for you.
