This tea originally premiered in the December 2016 Tea of the Month Club. "Ming Hua Xiang" literally describes tea flower aroma – the scent of camellia sinenses in bloom! The tea flowers blossoming around Daping village are an incredible and potent aroma, perfuming the fields in early autumn. Tieguanyin varietal has a unique marigold and honey aroma, and a dark floral quality. Master Zhang’s careful traditional processing preserves a beautiful green quality in this tea, a rich thick soybean-like flavor tempered by bright Chrysanthemum floral notes. A lingering pine flavor in the aftertaste makes this complex and satisfying over multiple steepings.
