TeaSource exclusive. Very limited quantity.

The eerie spirit of raw, natural elements. The body is light, but the cup echoes with texture. The primordial fragrance of a rocky landscape produces a stark character without astringency or bitterness. A unique find indeed.

Harvested and produced October 18-20, 2023 and roasted November 4, 2023 by Mr. Chen Yong Qiang in Ping Yuan County, Guangdong Province. It’s a one bud, two leaf pick of the Mei Zhan cultivar growing at approximately 1,100 feet.  This tea was the output of Day 2 from a three-day experimental collaboration between Mr. Chen and our friend Daniel Hong. The results of Day 1 and 3 were blended together to create Horseshoe. White tea is not commonly produced in Guangdong Province.

For more excellent teas from Mr. Chen, check out Floodplain, Untamed Elements, and Black Phoenix.
