Stone Milk Fragrance is one of the indigenous varietals of Wuyi rock oolong. It has a long twisted dark brown dry leaf, and is very fragrant with a fruity taste. This tea is not commonly grown as compared with other bush varietals in the Wuyi mountain region. This tea is from the core producing area of Wuyi, within the world heritage site of Wuyi Mountain, which the locals call it Zhen Yan. Tea from this area has the distinctive signature rock oolong taste.

This tea is from Tian You Fang rock in the core mountainous area, it is very floral, has hints of milk fragrance, butter rum, raisins and vanilla, a clear golden liquor, a creamy texture and a naturally sweet finish that lingers in your mouth and nose. It even tastes like a candy. This tea finely demonstrates the charming essence and sensory experience of Wuyi rock oolong, referred to locally as "Floral Fragrance, Rock Bone".
