    • TieguanyinTea Varietal

    Master Zhang excels at finishing his traditional Tieguanyin. He works to bring out the florals and strengthen them, allowing the green quality of the tea to shine through while providing a sweet and nuanced counterbalance through delicate roasting. Master Zhang's award-winning technique brings out the deep fruit and dark florals that don't have a chance to shine in greener, more modern finishes. This is the tea that Master Zhang grew up with and is his greatest passion. The mist shaded mountain air and sweet spring water make this true Tieguanyin varietal tea even more nuanced.


  • 'Daping’s natural mountain springs, perfect soil, and cool climate make it a paradise for tea. Master Zhang and his family have been growing in the mountaintops above Daping Village for as many generations back as they can trace.'
