    Original Wulong Revival is the result of years of research by Master Zhang on ancient oolong finishing techniques, a style between rolled Tieguanyin and fluffier Wuyi oolong. The unique finish gives this 2003 harvest aged tea a striking deep foresty flavor and sweet sparkling texture. While this tea was roasted every year for many years to control moisture and dial in the aging process, the tea is not deeply toasty. instead it expresses natural complexity in the same way an aged pu'er does.
