Jin GuanyinTea Varietal

Jin Guanyin is an unique varietal made by grafting Huang Jin Gui onto Tieguanyin root stock. Also grown in Anxi and often finished as a greener rolled oolong, the Li Family grows this tea in their fields in Tongmu and treats it to a slow and subtle roast. This creates a truly compelling tea that shines with traditional gong fu brewing, revealing strikingly different aspects of this complex tea with every steeping.

" The pristine beauty of Wuyi, the biodiversity of the valleys, the sweetness of the water, the deep devotion of the farmers like Li Xiangxi and her family – for us, tea has always been about connecting with places, people, and history, but Wuyi is a life affirming confirmation of everything there is to love about the humble camellia sinensis plant....
