From Taiwan Sourcing

Despite the absence of 2020 spring, this Zhushan plantation that created “Lily Fairy,” Lily Cream" and “Lily Maiden” finally re-united with us this season, and brought us lots of surprise.

Mr. Chen’s small plantation has been free from chemical since the beginning, so the tea trees were not neatly distributed on the land. Instead the tea trees were more like growing sporadically among the wild and tall weeds. Most of the Jin Xuan tea trees were dead because they could not bear Mr. Chen’s semi-wild management, and therefore leaving lots of blank spots in the plantation. However, the still surviving trees are the strongest under this “natural selection,” so in theory the tea trees can deliver the purest Jin Xuan characteristics under the right processing method.

As you may already noticed, this is a bug bitten tea like lots of our offering this season. If you have tried our “Lily Nectar” from Ruifeng village in 2020 winter, you will notice they have similar quality however completely different terroir. You can consider this as the upgraded version of “Lily Nectar” despite lower elevation for its remarkably clear purity. Our “Maiden Nectar” is already the personal favorite for some after its refined by master Zhuang, and you don’t need to be a fan of Jin Xuan to realize that.
