In his own words, Master Zhang teaches us about aged Anxi oolong and his aged Tieguanyin teas. After ten years of careful re-roasting, the teas grow in complexity, aroma, and depth.

As Master Zhang explains, “Tea may be dried, but it is still living inside.”

The careful control of moisture and clean storage helps insure aging Teiguanyin gains its depth naturally, rather becoming sour or overly fired..
