Search for tea in Mount Wuyi to enjoy its petrous flavor and flower fragrance. When walking along the trail and shuttling through the sites of top-grade rock tea, you will smell the mineral odour coming out of the glutenite under the sun which has been developed from billions of years of weathering since the cretaceous period and be surrounded by the pervasive flower fragrance and tea aroma in the valley. You can also taste the Wuyi rock tea at the special supply stations, giving you an ultimate experience of the tea from smell to taste.
