    Master Zhang is making some of the finest Tieguanyin in the world. Based in Daping village at the very highest peaks of Gande, Anxi. His terraced fields are overgrown with wildflowers, and fed by naturally sweet and clear mountain spring water. We are very lucky to share a limited release of Master Zhang's personal reserve of his oldest tea- a thirty year aged Tieguanyin, picked back in 1985. The slow and subtle roasting and aging process adds deep lingering spice to the Tieguanyin florals.


  • 'Wild flowers grow freely among natural flora and established tea hedges. The constant flowering works double duty – attracting insects away from the growing tea leaves while infusing the growing plants with their complex aroma.'
