    • TieguanyinTea Varietal

    Master Zhang is proud to be sharing true Tieguanyin varietal oolong, fed by mountain spring water and grown without pesticides or fertilizers under the high mountain mist.

The biodiversity of Daping lends complexity and depth of flavor to this tea, and the compelling combination of fresh aroma, clean flavor and compelling aftertaste make this 2018 spring harvest a must-try.
