Description

Verdant Reserve Club – August

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 the sweetest spring water in the world.

This aged Tieguanyin has been roasted once a year for 15 years to create a dark, rich and commanding tea. It is very rare to find a tea of this age that has been tended consistently and has a verified origin of such quality as Master Zhang.

The first sip of this tea opens up on the tongue with the complexity of a fine pu’er. It is rich, caramel-like, and fruity like a cup of tawny port. This tea is roasted so masterfully that there is no charcoal or burnt sugar flavor. This is a pure, clean and sweet tea that brings out the natural creamy and floral notes of Anxi’s terroir. The flavor is so substantive that it reminds me of tsanpa, roasted and ground barley kneaded with tea and butter.
