Crafted by Master Zhang

Environmentalist and award-winning craftsman, Master Zhang is committed to pioneering low-impact tea farming that replenished natural forests on his high elevation Anxi mountain plot.
 
Master Zhang devotes his energy to introducing rare varietals of tea to increase biodiversity and researching ancient finishing techniques to make rich, aromatic oolong unlike anything else in the world.
    • DATE OF PICKINGMay 2024
    • Daping VillageAnxi, Fujian
    • ELEVATION1000 m
    • TieguanyinTea Varietal

    Master Zhang is proud to be sharing true Tieguanyin varietal oolong, fed by mountain spring water and grown without pesticides or fertilizers under the high mountain mist. Most Tieguanyin sold is actually Benshan or other similar varietals which lack the long drawn out aftertaste of Tieguanyin. The biodiversity of Daping lends complexity and depth of flavor to this tea, with a compelling combination of fresh aroma, clean flavor and compelling aftertaste.
