Zi Mu DanTea Varietal

Zi Mudan, or Purple Peony, is a very new varietal developed for its intense aromatics. Finished as a modern, green Anxi oolong, this tea is even more floral than Tieguanyin! The tea benefits from growing on Master Zhang's terraced high mountain fields between patches of wildflowers. Zi Mudan is an example of the growing, changing industry and an exciting look at the future of Fujianese tea.

" 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... "
