Oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian province of China. Wuyi Oolong grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountainous rock, rendering cultivation both arduous and spellbindingly beautiful. This tea is famous for its "dragonfly's head, frog's limbs and three colors." The latter refers to the green, red and brown colors found in the cross-section of each leaf.
