Eight Immortals or "Ba Xian" is a tea that is named after eight mythical individuals who have achieved immortality through living out the Daoist traditions. However, what makes the tea seemingly "immortal" is that when this cultivar was initially grafted, only eight of the original plants survived. The progeny of these eight plants are used to make this delightful tea today. 

The tea has a silky and moderately thick texture and leaves a lingering sweet date finish with accents of apricot. Its slow charcoal roasting lends its warm spice aroma enhanced by the array of bright fruit flavors including ripe mango and plums.
