    • Huang Jin GuiTea Varietal

    This tea originally premiered in the Sept. 2020 Tea of the Month Club box! Huang Jin Gui, or Golden Water Turtle, is actually most widely tasted when grafted onto Tieguanyin to make Jin Guanyin. It is actually a remarkable show-stopper of an oolong when cultivated for what it has to offer. Huang Jin Gui is hugely fruity with juicy notes dominating, and a luscious honey backbone to carry the fruit. When the weather, soil and finishing come together perfectly, this tea also has an intriguingly complex cooling quality and deep minerality behind all that luscious dessert-like goodness.


  • 'Tea requires sky, earth, and people to come together as one... These flexible and organic things are hard to completely control. It takes a mutual agreement with the tea. You can't just demand it'
