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 zippy, citrus brightness. The leaves open up quickly, yielding a much bigger profile than Tieguanyin.

This tea is pre-packed in individual 5g packets for sizes under 100g.

" Tea requires sky, earth, and people to come together as one... These flexible and organic things are hard to completely control. It takes a mutual agreement with the tea. You can't just demand it... "
