This is a tea without a mother: the original Eight Immortals tree was struck by lightning more than 200 years ago and has been survived by cuttings from a grafting. The grating itself has eight distinct branches, which were named after the genie-like sages of Daoist mythology. The mineral rich taste and magnolia blossom fragrance found in Ba Xian (Eight Immortals) cultivar is unmistakable. Through steepings, the evolution of this tea from sweet and fruity to savory is a wonder to behold. Notes of osmanthus flowers, nectarine, and honey.
