Included in this set:
- Water Fairy (Shui Xian): - Roasted Oolong Tea. Shui Xian is considered the 'mother tea' of the famous Rock Oolong teas of the Wuyi mountains. This tea offers caramel and toasted vanilla notes and a fragrant floral aroma.
- Wild White (Shou Mei) 2008: - Aged White Tea. Shou Mei white tea from wild tea trees. This tea has been pressed into cakes and aged, bringing out mellow honey sweetness with a tingling cooling sensation.
- Heavenly Sips (Tian Jian Fu Cha): - Dark Tea. 'Brick Tea', originally traded with central and northern Asia along the fabled Tea-Horse Road, is famous for its 'golden flowers' running throughout. This character of this fermented tea is orchids crossed with rain-soaked forest.
- Snow Mountain (Sheng Pu'er) 2012: - Raw Pu'er Tea. This wiry tea from Yunnan has the minerality common to pu'er (often compared to the flavor of a peach pit), but it quickly gives way to a lingering honeysuckle aftertaste.
