The 2019 spring harvest of this tea is here! Daping is the birthplace of the Maoxie (Hairy Crab) varietal, and the village is proud of its heritage. We are excited to offer this reserve harvest of high elevation Mao Xie from Master Zhang in Daping. This year's light traditional finish brings out layers of complexity in the beautiful leaves over many steepings.
'In his own words, Master Zhang describes the differences between different Anxi oolong tea varietals growing in his fields above Daping, Anxi. From Mao Xie and Tieguanyin to Mei Zhan, Qilan and Ben Shan, a wide variety of cultivars grow side-by-side'
