TieguanyinTea Varietal

Master Zhang re-roasted this classic Tieguanyin varietal every year for five years to control for moisture and maintain a slow even process of change, slowly building up powerful woody undertones, cooling sensation, and deep dark fruity flavor. Master Zhang follows the weather and the specific qualities fo each picking from his biodiverse mountain plot for all finishing and roasting, using all his senses to bring out etc natural qualities of the tea, so even with so many years of age and roasting, the power and structure of true high mountain Tieguanyin has not been obscured, rather it has been strengthened by exquisite craft.

This tea is pre-packed in individual 5g packets for sizes under 100g.
