Rou GuiTea Varietal

Rou Gui is better known as a roasted oolong from Wuyi. Master Zhang's Rou Gui varietal bushes grow among Tieguanyin fields and wildflowers, and benefit from sweet mountain spring water. Rou Gui is famous for its rich cinnamon flavor, and it is a real treat to taste such strong, sweet steeping cinnamon notes in a modern rolled Anxi oolong. This spring harvest reminds us of the spice and complexity of wild Yunnan Yabao tea, but with a beautiful fresh quality.

Master Zhang also recommends

" We were super surprised to open our gaiwan of bright green leaves and smell bold sweet cinnamon. It was almost more cinnamon-forward than roasted Rou Gui from Wuyi. The flavor was like cinnamon vanilla oatmeal. It was remarkable to be tasting such deep dark toasty flavors from a green rolled oolong.... "
