Cai CongTea Varietal

Master Zhang cultivates this rare Cai Cong (菜聪) varietal to encourage biodiversity on his high elevation plot in Daping, Anxi. His careful processing has brought out a surprisingly rich muscat grape flavor in this tea along with deep osmanthus florals and a sweet, long aftertaste. The light oxidation of this tea's traditional finish complements the dessert-like flavors of Cai Cong with a buttery, creamy finish.

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