Daping Village Anxi
Daping is the birthplace of the Maoxie (Hairy Crab) varietal, and the village is proud of its heritage. We are excited to offer this reserve autumn harvest of high elevation Maoxie from Master Zhang in Daping. This reserve tea has finished traditionally in Master Zhang's favorite style to compliment the naturally buttery and sweet-savory aspects of the Mao Xie cultivar.
'In his own words, Master Zhang describes the differences between different Anxi oolong tea varietals growing in his fields above Daping, Anxi. From Mao Xie and Tieguanyin to Mei Zhan, Qilan and Ben Shan, a wide variety of cultivars grow side-by-side'
