Bai Ya Qi Lan
Bai Ya Qi Lan is a little-known tea from Southern Fujian, what it lacks in fame it makes up for many times over with taste. The aroma of the dry leaves is roasted chestnuts and hazelnuts with brown sugar and a touch of orchids. From the first steep to the last, this tea is potent, strong notes of nuts and marzipan blend with a gentle floral finish. This is a very sweet tea, the brown sugar aftertaste lingers long after the session has finished.
