TieguanyinTea Varietal

Master Zhang is proud to be sharing true Tieguanyin varietal oolong, fed by mountain spring water and grown without pesticides or fertilizers under the high mountain mist. Most Tieguanyin sold is actually Benshan or other similar varietals which lack the long drawn out aftertaste of Tieguanyin. The biodiversity of Daping and the mountain soil lend intense complexity and depth of flavor to this tea.

" The leaves on his tea plants were so green and plump, they looked like they could burst. We all took a handful of fresh Tieguanyin leaves and ate them raw, tasting the naturally intense sweet green floral nature of the plant.... "
