From Yunnan Sourcing

Mei Zhan is a varietal is originally from Anxi area of Fujian, and has been grown in Wu Yi for more than 80 years. It’s also growing in Fuding and is used for both black tea (Bai Lin Gong Fu) and white tea (Bai Mao Hou). It’s a drought resistant varietal that adapted well to the rocky conditions in Wu Yi. Our Mei Zhan grows at an altitude of 900 meters.

The tea has a strong thick taste, with notes of fruit, sweet corn, flowers and that mineral “rock taste” that Wu Yi is known for. The roasting is done over a few weeks resulting in a finely crafted light-medium roast rock tea.

So tonight I finished off the 4 or 5 grams I had left. The tea became much softer and the liquor was viscous with hints of vanilla, cream and fruitiness with florals dominating instead of the minerals. What a difference a heavy leaf makes! I’ll up the rating based on this tea’s versatility even though it doesn’t quite fit my favored profile, but I do recommend it! Maybe 6 grams per 100mL would bring out the best this yancha has to offer.
