    • Zi Mu DanTea Varietal

    Zi Mudan, or Purple Peony, is a very new tea varietal developed for its intense aromatics. Finished as a modern, green Anxi oolong, this tea is even more floral than Tieguanyin! The tea benefits from growing on Master Zhang's terraced high mountain fields between patches of wildflowers. Zi Mudan is an example of the growing, changing industry and an exciting look at the future of Fujianese tea.

  • '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.'
