Wuyi/Yancha Question

Postby fletch » Jan 20th, '11, 08:21

I was wondering if any tea experts could tell me which type of Wuyi/Yancha tea that Republic of Tea uses (http://www.republicoftea.com/product.aspx?p=V00692)? It was one of my favorites before I began ordering from other vendors; thus, I would like to try out other variations of it.

Thank you,
CF

Thanks! I should have investigated a little more thoroughly. Nonetheless, it is good to know that it is not a true yancha, as I am trying to learn the tastes of true yancha tea.
