    Master Zhang excels at finishing his traditional Tieguanyin. He works to bring out the florals and strengthen them, allowing the green quality of the tea to shine through while providing a sweet and nuanced counterbalance through delicate roasting. This is the tea that Master Zhang grew up with and his greatest passion. The mist shaded mountain air and sweet spring water make this true Tieguanyin varietal tea even more nuanced.


  • 'The beauty of Master Zhang’s tieguanyin tea fields cannot be understated. We wandered his fields for hours, taking the smells, the sounds, the clean air and the sunshine. The precious micro-climate created by the peaks is an invaluable resource.'
