Green Garden Tieguanyin | Oolong Tea
A jungle-thick green Tieguanyin. Intense buttery floral aroma and cup. The mouthfeel is brothy and savory. Nothing subtle about this tea so be careful not to stray too far from the path.
Produced April 28-30, 2023 by Mr. Wang Dejiang in Jiandou Town, Anxi County, Fujian Province. It is a one bud, two leaf pick from the Tieguanyin cultivar grown at approximately 2,400 feet. Mr. Wang is 60 years old and has spent decades focused on Tieguanyin, refining the techniques he initially learned from his grandfather. We’ve been buying this tea from him for many years now and hopefully many more to come.
