Wild Wuyi - Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong
We call this tasty Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong black tea - WILD WUYI - because the tea leaves are picked from wild grown tea trees in Huang Gang Mt, Tong Mu Village Area. Sometimes people also refer to this tea as Lapsang Souchong and that this tea is always a pine smoked tea. However, this is tea is not smoked. Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong that is not smoked has become more preferred among tea drinkers because it allows the farmers to really show the quality of black tea rather than hiding behind the smoke. The Chen family in Wuyi produces this classic black tea, which is great for a daily breakfast tea.
