Master Zhang’s family has tended the Tieguanyin of Daping Village for generations. His tea is fed by sweet mountain springs and grows on the cloud-enveloped peaks of Anxi.
Master Zhang doesn’t make tea to follow trends. He experiments and takes risks to make tea better for the generations to come. This unusual tea is based on his ongoing research into early Anxi oolong teas with a half-rolled / half strip-style shape, and a very meticulous turning and fluffing process that goes further than most modern tea would. In this experimental offering, he applies this research to the Tieguanyin varietal and provides enough roast for a deep, rich aroma. The result is a tea full of toasted rice flavor, and an orchid floral and darker woody spice complemented by sweet, tropical florals.
