    • TieguanyinTea Varietal

    True Tieguanyin varietal stands out for its deep lingering aftertaste, big texture, and the ability to steep out over many infusions. Master Zhang has honed his Tieguanyin cultivation techniques and finishing process over forty years of experimentation, earning the respect of the entire Daping area as a teacher and community leader. He utilizes organic farming techniques, encourages biodiversity, and advocates against wasteful irrigation to encourage healthy and deeply complex and nuanced tea. This modern green style Tieguanyin requires an intense turning and fluffing process in finishing that needs to be adapted on the spot depending on the weather and the aroma, requiring deep experience.


  • 'Daping’s natural mountain springs, perfect soil, and cool climate make it a paradise for tea. Master Zhang and his family have been growing in the mountaintops above Daping Village for as many generations back as they can trace.'
