    • Dan GuiTea Varietal

    Dan Gui is a modern varietal more often used for darker strip-style Wuyi Oolongs. This sweet and lingering spring harvest has been given a more traditional Anxi roast finish which is darker than modern green Tieguanyin finishes. This 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 or muscat aftertaste compliments the aromatic florals and contrasts beautifully with the darker 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'
