In the peerless atmosphere of Fujian’s highest altitudes grows King’s Tieguanyin, a tea whose rarity is matched only by its singularly aromatic, mild sweetness. Formerly a royal tribute tea, today’s tea masters select only superlative batches of this renowned oolong to be named King’s Grade. Connoisseurs revere—and occasionally bid spiritedly on—this tea for its flavor as much as its cachet, as the vivid, green leaves of this precious tea yield a liqueur bright with subtle honey and floral flavors. Today, this lot is reserved for the tea competition only.
