A microlot prized for taste notes of summer squash, toasted buckwheat, & hyacinth.

Four years ago in Wuyi, Spirit Tea inquired with Zhou family tea producers to see if they would consider making their Qi Lan cultivar as a black tea process. They agreed to devote a portion of their garden’s tiny yield for this very purpose. This is the first year that the Zhou family and Spirit Tea have been able to share this spectacular harvest with the world. As you will taste, the result was well worth the risk.
