TieguanyinTea Varietal

Master Zhang doesn’t make tea to follow trends. He experiments and takes risks to make tea better for the generations to come. This unusual tea is based on his ongoing research into early Anxi oolong teas with a half-rolled / half strip-style shape, and a very meticulous turning and fluffing process that goes further than most modern tea would. In this experimental offering, he applies this research to the Tieguanyin varietal and provides enough roast for a deep, rich aroma. The result is a tea full of toasted rice flavor, and an orchid floral and darker woody spice complemented by sweet, tropical florals.

" Master Zhang calls these teas his little experiments, and this year-long work means he is always working to challenge himself, collaborate, learn and explore. These teas don’t make it to market, shared only within a close personal network of trusted friends. Out of all of his experiments this autumn, Master Zhang hand picked these five new teas to share with all of you... "
