Huang Jin GuiTea Varietal

Huang Jin Gui, or Golden Water Turtle, is actually most widely tasted when grafted onto Tieguanyin to make Jin Guanyin. It is actually a remarkable show-stopper of an oolong when cultivated for what it has to offer. Huang Jin Gui is hugely fruity with juicy mango notes dominating, and a luscious honey backbone to carry the fruit. When the weather, soil and finishing come together perfectly, this tea also has an intriguingly complex cooling quality and deep minerality behind all that luscious dessert-like goodness.
