This area is called Zheng Yan Cha, the Wuyishan Core Area. Ma Tou Yan Rou Gui is produced in this area in Fuijan, and it is now a symbol of Yan Cha of Wuyishan. Even though Da Hong Pao, Tie Luo Han, Shui Jin Gui, and Bai Ji Guan used to be top on the list of Yan Cha, known as the four best tea trees, but today Rou Gui is more popular than those tea trees.

How to prepare

1. Warm a teapot by pouring boiling water.
2. Put tea leaves of 3~4g into the pot per water of 150cc and pour boiling water to the pot at about
3. Warm a pitcher or a cup by pouring the remaining boiling water.
4. Steam it in about 60 seconds.
If the scum comes up on tea, take it off with the edge of the tea cover. No need to throw away the tea to wash tea leaves. Steam it in a shorter time (about 50 seconds) in the second infusion because tea leaves are already open after making cups of tea for the first time. After several infusions, the taste of tea is getting weak, so take ten seconds longer to steam for each cup in order to make some cups of tea evenly.
5. Pour the tea into a pitcher from a teapot first to make tea even, then pour it into the cups.
Make sure to open the lid of a teapot to prevent it from steaming too much.

Taste of tea is a matter of preference, so try infusing tea in several ways and find your favorite way to infuse.
