TieguanyinTea Varietal

Master Zhang’s tea fields stretch across the side of a mountain that is almost always covered in mist. The spring water feeding the tea is pristine, crystal clear and sweet as sugar. You can pick leaves right off of Mr. Zhang’s tea plants and eat them fresh, revealing the sweet, pure chlorophyl-packed nature of his tea. Master Zhang and all the farmers in his hillside in Daping are committed to fully organic farming techniques. Master Zhang's earliest spring teas are unusually potent & vibrant.
