    • Ming Xiang YunTea Varietal

    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.'
