Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian. Its literal translation is 'Original Mountain Small Kind'.  Only tea leaves picked from the area of Wuyishan Mountain, centering in Tongmuguan can be called "Zheng Shan".  The leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavor, although the range of smokiness varies from barely noticeable to extremely smoky.  This Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is very lightly smoked which makes it easier to notice the fruity longan notes in the brew.
