Huang Jin GuiTea Varietal

Master Zhang is proud of the biodiversity of his tea fields, encouraging many varietals to grow side by side. His Huang Jin Gui grows above Daping village, fed by sweet mountain spring water. This unique varietal is full of big osmanthus floral notes and a striking sweet sticky rice flavor. The leaves open up quickly yielding a much bigger profile than Tieguanyin.
