Ming Xiang YunTea
Ming Xiang Yun is a delicate and well balanced cultivar full of violet and crocus florals, deep notes of cocoa, lingering sweet fennel and the textural complexity that comes with Daping’s mineral-laden rocky soil. Master Zhang cultivates this little-seen varietal as part of his commitment to achieving the rich biodiversity, all while maintaining zero-impact agriculture for his Original Ecological Preserve designation.
'The process of making oolong is bringing the tea back and forth between withered and alive... the process of bringing it back from the brink eliminates bitterness and astringency.'
