Jin GuanyinTea Varietal

Jin Guanyin is an unique varietal made by grafting Huang Jin Gui onto Tieguanyin root stock, combining the fruit and floral aromatics of Huang Jin Gui with the creamy and grassy flavor of Tieguanyin for a rich and well balanced oolong. Master Zhang loves working with teas like Jin Guanyin that give him room to affect flavor and aftertaste through not just finishing craft but also the actual craft involved in agriculture and cultivation itself.
