About  Qi Lan (Rare Orchid) Wuyi Rock Tea

 

 
Wuyi tea, formerly known by the trade name "Bohea" in English, is a category of black and oolong teas grown in the Wuyi Mountains of northern Fujian, China. The Wuyi region produces a number of well-known teas, including Lapsang souchong and Da Hong Pao.It has historically been one of the major centers of tea production in Fujian province and globally. Both black tea (excluding brick tea) and oolong tea were likely invented in the Wuyi region, which continues to produce both styles today.
 
Wuyi teas are sometimes called "rock teas" (yancha) because of the distinctive terroir of the mountainsides where they are grown. Tea grown in the rocky, mineral-rich soil is highly prized. Because of the lower yield produced by tea bushes in such terrain, the resulting tea can be quite costly. Tea made from the leaves of older bushes is particularly expensive and limited in quantity. Da Hong Pao, collected from what are said to be the original bushes of its variety, is among the most expensive teas in the world, and more valuable by weight than gold.Commercial-grade tea grown at lower elevations in the area accounts for the majority of the Wuyi tea available on the market.Commercial Da Hong Pao is made from cuttings of the original plants.
 
Qi Lan is a very mild Wuyi oolong tea. It has an obvious sweet and nutty aroma. 
 
Brewing Instruction
Pick up 1 spoon of Qi Lan Oolong tea (About 3-6g) and threw into Glass Tea Cup (or Gai Wan) about 150-200ml. Pour water (70–75 °C ) and brewing about 3-7 minutes then serve. It's better to preheat the teapot and cups before brewing this tea.

Chinese Tea Culture

Tea plays an important role in China. It is commonly consumed at social events, and many cultures have created intricate formal ceremonies for these events. Afternoon tea is a British custom with widespread appeal. Tea ceremonies, with their roots in the Chinese tea culture, differ among East Asian countries, such as the Japanese or Korean versions. Tea may differ widely in preparation, such as in Tibet, where the beverage is commonly brewed with salt and butter. Tea may be drunk in small private gatherings (tea parties) or in public (tea houses designed for social interaction).
