Origin

Origin: China
Region: Wuhan
Province: Hubei

This delicious oolong comes from Wuhan the capital of Hubei province in China. From the late 17th century, during the Qing Dynasty, Wuhan was the starting point of the tea trade route to Mongolia. This trade route was also called the “Camel Route of the grasslands” or the “Sino-Russian Ten-Thousand-Li Tea Road” of modern China. This trade route is not as well known as the Silk Road, but may explain why Hubei is now one of the top three most producing tea regions in China.
