Dan Gui is a modern varietal more often used for darker strip-style Wuyi Oolongs. The more traditional Anxi roast finish, darker than modern green Tieguanyin finishes, gives us a unique comparison point between Wuyi and Anxi Dan Gui while bringing out the varietal's natural spice and exotic florals. A juicy pear aftertaste compliments the osmanthus and contrasts beautifully with the dark rich roast.
'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'
