Produced By the Liu Family

In Longjuan, Anxi, tradition and market pressures don’t drive the Liu Family to focus exclusively on traditional techniques; instead, they explore unexpected styles, mixing techniques and taking inspiration from across China to build a demand for their craft.

TieguanyinTea Varietal

The Liu Family's Dark Roast Tieguanyin is finished with long term aging in mind, so careful slow application of heat is used to preserve the green bright core of the tea while bringing out deep spice and savory notes. Each sip is aromatic like Chinese lacquered rosewood, and satisfying like toasted rice. The careful and meticulous craft applied to this tea makes it an incredibly cozy yet complex brew.
