Hong Xin Wai Wei Tao is originated from Anxi, China, and it is an original cultivar of Muzha Tie Guan Yin and Zheng Cong Tie Guan Yin, which are well-known (and usually expensive) Taiwanese teas. Hong Xin Wai Wei Tao Tie Guan Yin releases such unique scents and warmness from its cultivar, so this tea offers a great opportunity to learn more about the cultivar.
