Sold Out

Ba Xian, or Eight Immortals, Oolong originates from a couple small vllages in Wun Dong, China, at about 1700 ft elevation. This tea, for whatever reason, is not mass produced.

Ba Xian is a unique varietal that has 53 distinct aromatic molecules. This is also a tea grown traditionally, using no chemicals.

The taste is bold with a quick bitterness that quickly fades into a fruit and floral sweetness with a distinct magnolia aroma.

This is a very limited tea, from Mar 2017.
