    • Qianjiazhai YeshengTea Varietal

    This tea is wild picked by Master Zhou in the oldest tea forest in the world. The leaves in this cake are called the Gu Hua harvest, from 300 year old trees. The biodiversity of Qianjiazhai gives immense complexity to the flavor of this tea. The sweet, smooth fruity flavor and rich texture are incredibly drinkable, and promising for long-term aging.


  • 'We are loved the crisp apple and mineral notes on this looseleaf tea. The florals were more subdued, while the sweet thick texture was even stronger than the pressed cakes. The citrus notes reminded us of a sparkling Oregon Brut'
