    Spiced, sweet, and floral - the new autumn harvest of this tea is now available!

    Rou Gui is better known as a roasted oolong from Wuyi, famous in Wuyi for its intense and aromatic cinnamon flavor. Master Zhang's Rou Gui varietal bushes grow among Tieguanyin fields and wildflowers, and benefit from sweet mountain spring water. Master Zhang's dark roast on this autumn harvest rolled Anxi Rou Gui brings out not just rich cinnamon spice, but also dessert-like complexity and a beautifully floral lingering aftertaste.


  • 'We were super surprised to open our gaiwan of bright green leaves and smell bold sweet cinnamon. It was almost more cinnamon-forward than roasted Rou Gui from Wuyi. The flavor was like cinnamon vanilla oatmeal. It was remarkable to be tasting such deep dark toasty flavors from a green rolled oolong.'
