    • JIN GUANYINTea Varietal

    Jin Guanyin is better known as a juicy and floral oolong tea, originally produced by grafting Huang Jin Gui onto Tieguanyin root stock. Though Huang Jin Gui and Tieguanyin are both most famous as Anxi varietals, the combined Jin Guanyin cultivar planted in Wuyi becomes something new and takes on the rocky minerality of the region's terroir. The florals in this compelling and unique black tea are tempered by a savory finish from the Li Family's expert Xiao Zhong processing techniques.


  • 'With sweet floral notes of rose, saffron, and marigold paired with cozy rosewood, savory cream, and wuyi minerality, it's no wonder this tea has become a fast favorite! The woody texture reminds us of sweet incense, and even long steepings produce sweet cups without astringency'
