    • Jin GuanyinTea Varietal

    This Jin Guanyin is an unique varietal made by grafting Huang Jin Gui onto Tieguanyin root stock, combining the fruit and floral aromatics of Huang Jin Gui with the creamy and grassy flavor of Tieguanyin for a rich and well balanced oolong. Master Zhang loves working with teas like Jin Guanyin that give him room to affect flavor and aftertaste through not just finishing craft but also the actual craft involved in agriculture and cultivation itself. Master Zhang crafted this year's harvest with a traditional finish, allowing the aromatic elements of this tea to shine against a darker contrast.


  • 'The first steepings were full of big, juicy fruit flavors with supporting citrus and a strong nutty sweet mouthfeel. As the tea steeped out, we got more violet florals and a deep Wuyi-style mineral texture. Very late in steeping, the fruity notes shift towards tropical plantains and mango.'
