Mao XieTea Varietal

Daping is the birthplace of the Maoxie (Hairy Crab) varietal, and the village is proud of its heritage. Master Zhang is one of Daping's foremost craftsman of traditional Anxi oolong processing, and as it is his favorite way to finish his oolong teas, it only makes sense to show off the subtle and more savory finish of traditional roasting on this varietal. The traditional finish on the 2019 harvest is darker than the classic Mao Xie harvest, and this brings out unique sweetness that are hidden in a greener finish.
