Rapture (Zheng Yan Cha) is a beautiful Oolong Tea (WuLong Cha) from Zheng Yan, Wuyi Shan, Fujian Province with a heavy minerality taste and a very heavy-bodied mouthfeel.

Like all of our teas, we only source the "Grand Cru" version of Rapture (Zheng Yan Cha) through our exclusive relationships with the most sought after tea farmers in China.

About Rapture

This is one of the most advanced Cliff teas (also translated Rock teas) we stock. Rapture is truly reserved for the most experienced Yan Cha drinkers. It has a much higher strength of flavor and mouthfeel, but by the end of the sip you are left with a surprisingly smooth and drinkable tea for what is such an intense beginning.

Because of how intense and hard to grok Rapture is, we never expected anyone to purchase it. Yet, a select few of our most experience customers consistently purchase Rapture in very high volume. We recommend trying Cloak of Heaven first before working your way up to Rapture.
