    • Huang Jin GuiTea Varietal

    Huang Jin Gui, or “Golden Water Turtle,” is actually most widely tasted when grafted onto Tieguanyin to make Jin Guanyin. It is actually a remarkable show-stopper of an oolong when cultivated for what it has to offer. Huang Jin Gui is hugely fruity with a luscious honey backbone to carry the fruit. Aging deepens the fruity flavor and develops a rich spice that leads into cooling minerality.


  • 'Wild flowers grow freely among natural flora and established tea hedges. The constant flowering works double duty – attracting insects away from the growing tea leaves while infusing the growing plants with their complex aroma.'
