Product description

 Wuyi Sparrow Tongue Oolong Tea - Sedona Arizona's Full-Leaf Tea Store 
One of the five famous teas (varietals) from in the Wuyi Mountain Scenic Preserve of far north Fujian Province (bordering Jiangxi Province)of south eastern China, where the most desirable “Wu Long, Wu Yi Yan Cha” rock oolong teas are produced. Thepicturesque mountain cliffs, fertile Nine-Bend River, and mineral-rich rocky terrain are the most critical contributions to the character of the tea. These oolongs are famous for their floral and “rock, bone, stone” signature minerality taste and mouth feel. The leaves are usually heavily roasted to produce the renown aroma.Like all historically famous teas in China, the specifics of the growing locations are meticulously detailed, for quality, rarity, and price.Unlike many other tea-producing areas in China, the tea trees here are not cultivated in the plantation style. They are allowed to grow naturally wild in spacious groves (making them more difficult to pick), ranging in age from a few years old to well more than 100 years old, and elevations around 1000-1700 feet.  Although not necessarily certified organic, this area is strictly protected by the government, so absolutely no chemicals or pesticides are used.
 
OurQUE SHE(akaSparrow Tongue) is a low production/small batchOOLONGacquireddirect from farmer located in the Zheng Yan Circle Mountain area (which translates to “True Cliff”, and is the most core location in Wuyishan) that extends only about 18 square miles. Harvested 4/20/2015 from theWuyi garden known as Shui Lian Dong (水帘洞)or the Waterfall Cave within the Zheng Yan CircleOur Sparrow Tongue has been lightly roasted twice (approx 8 hours each), is best known for its light almost creamy floral, hint of vanilla, minerality, and with a very long-lasting aftertaste. Sparrow Tongue's name comes from the slender size and shape of the leaves from its own original slow-growing, low-yield cultivar, and is therefore fairly rare to be offered.
 
AVAILABLE AS:1 OZ Package,   2 OZ Package
Package size is 1 ounce of full leaf tea, which yields approximately 12 to 13 first cups. 2 ounce package yields about 25 first cups.
