    This tea originally premiered in the Sept. 2020 Tea of the Month Club box! Master Zhang’s Tao Ren (桃仁) Oolong is a stunning intersection of meticulous crafting and perfectly matched terroir to varietal. The most distinctive quality to this traditionally finished Anxi tea is its “Yun,” the cooling and tingling sensation that lingers long after every sip. A deep forest-like woody quality builds over each steeping much like an old tree Shui Xian might. In the long aftertaste orchid florals build to counterbalance the deep forest notes, complimenting the peach notes for which this cultivar is named.


  • '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'
