Qi Lan is a heritage variety of Wuyi rock teas (Yancha) that offers superb balance with refined character. It represents the classic Yancha flavour profile with distinction; fruity, woody, intense warmth, and volcanic mineral finish. While some rock teas spike in certain flavour directions, Qi Lan takes the middle road and produces a highly rewarding drinking experience for every day enjoyment. A subtle peach fruitiness with a rich woody depth, finishing in sweet charcoal warmth and minerality on later steeps. A stalwart companion.
