Reading the Tea Leaves

You may not be able to read them like a book, but they do tell a story! Our 2009 selection of Wu Yi Yan Cha includes two unusual varieties: Fo Shou (Buddha Palm) and Bai Ji Guan (White Cock's Comb). We've shown you the dry leaves; here's an up close look at the leaves after infusion.

If you're curious to give the new yan cha a try, they were just delivered to the teahouse this afternoon. They're also available online.
