This true Tieguanyin varietal tea grows on the high mountains above Daping in Anxi, shaded in mist and fed by sweet mountain spring water. Master Zhang’s biodiverse tea fields bring deep floral and creamy complexity to his tea. This picking is from his thirty to sixty year old tea plants, made with the finest leaves, and carefully hand processed to bringing out the deep rich florals that define true Tieguanyin varietal with a light modern finish.

Picked up a sample of this with my recent Verdant order to see how it compared to regular TGY. My initial impressions are there is little difference between the two.
The pale green, loosely rolled leaves have the aromas of orchid and lilac. The tea has a nice, classic TGY taste. It’s heavy on the lilac, and also has notes of orchid and crème brulee. Mouthfeel is a little thin and it doesn’t resteep as well as other TGYs I’ve had.
A solid TGY overall but nothing spectacular. It doesn’t really stand out from their regular version which is a stellar tea in its own right.
