Liao Mian JiTea Varietal
Master Zhang cultivates this almost unheard-of varietal as part of his commitment to achieving the rich biodiversity in his tea fields, all while maintaining zero-impact agriculture for his Original Ecological Preserve designation. Liao Mian Ji is a unique cultivar, full of deep dessert-like caramel undertones and rich nutmeg and spice. Master Zhang’s slow, full roast brings out even more sweetness in the aftertaste.
'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.'
