Dan GuiTea Varietal

Dan Gui is a modern varietal more often used for darker strip-style Wuyi Oolongs. This sweet and lingering spring harvest has been given a more traditional Anxi roast finish which is darker than modern green Tieguanyin finishes. This gives us a unique comparison point between Wuyi and Anxi Dan Gui while bringing out the varietal's natural spice and exotic florals. A juicy pear or muscat aftertaste compliments the aromatic florals and contrasts beautifully with the darker roast.
