Tao RenTea Varietal

Master Zhang’s Tao Ren (桃仁) Oolong is a stunning intersection of meticulous crafting and perfectly matched terroir to varietal. The most distinctive quality to this traditionally finished Anxi tea is its “Yun,” the cooling and tingling sensation that lingers long after every sip. A deep forest-like woody quality builds over each steeping much like an old tree Shui Xian might. In the long aftertaste orchid florals build to counterbalance the deep forest notes, complimenting the peach notes for which this cultivar is named.

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