Chi Gan "Red and Sweet" comes from Tongmu Guan in the Wuyi Mountains, today famous for being the place of origin of Lapsang Souchong smoked tea and a place protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It could be said that Chi Gan is the pure, unsmoked version of Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, the same tea that Robert Fortune stole from Wuyi and brought to India to plant in Darjeeling. It comes from native heirloom tea bushes called Quntizhong to refer to those tea trees that are grown from seed and are not cultivars. Its withering and oxidation processing was masterfully controlled to achieve this profound and complex tea, highly aromatic and fruity with a powerful note of peach and a touch of citrus.
