Tie Luo Han is an exceptional rock tea. It is one of the four famous bushes (Si Da Ming Cong) of Wuyi. The almost inaccessible tea growing area makes industrial production virtually impossible and so this tea is still harvested by hand. The manufacturer also produces out of conviction purely organic. This is also promoted by the government since Wuyi Shan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it should remain like this. The Wuyi mountain range stretches at an altitude between 200 and up to 2058m and have a mild climate with an average temperature of 21°C.
Tea production in Wuyi has a thousand year old tradition and the historical knowledge about the art of tea is passed down from generation to generation. This special type of tea is grown in Mi Tou Yan which belongs to Zheng Yan, the centre of Wuyi Shan and is, thanks centuries old knowledge, processed into a oolong of it’s own class. Rock teas are still produced very traditionally: The tea is dried and withered in baboo trays and finally roasted over charcoal fire in bamboo baskets.
Through textbook processing and strong roasting of the tea leaves is this Wuyi Yan Cha durable and especially suitable for connoisseurs which prefer traditional Wuyi teas.
