DESCRIPTION

Meizhan (梅占) is a relatively unheard-of Fujian province varietal, especially when compared with some nowadays mainstream teas like Rogui, Shuixian or Da Hong Pao. Meizhan, said to have originated in Anxi, is pretty much of a migrant cultivar, that has already been in the Wuyi Mountains, according to estimations, for about 300 hundred years - nowadays known as "Wuyi Meizhan" (武夷梅占 ) - and where it developed unique characteristics and flavours, as well as a group of connoisseur followers.
.
This is a 2021 Zhengyan Wuyi Old Tree Meizhan (2021正岩武夷老树梅占) that grows in the Foguo Rock (佛国岩), located in the core "Zhengyan" (正岩) or Full Rock area of the National Reserve of the Wuyi Mountains. Tea leaves are from "Old Tree" (老树)as this Meizhan is from a 60+ years old tea tree. It is a middle-roasted oolong rock, having undergone a traditional rock tea charcoal roasting process, specifically three roasting rounds as it follows:
.
- A first roasting at 110ºC
.
- A second roasting at 115ºC
.
- A third roasting at 125ºC

Wuyi Meizhan is a relatively lower oxidated rock tea and it comes along with a more accentuated, unique and distinctive floral and umami taste as well as a touch of spiciness. As a purebred tea (in opposition to blends) presents its true self with the above characterics while keeping the mineral and charcoal notes of a Rock Tea.
