Superior Tieguanyin
Smooth and mildly smoky with good depth of flavor.

Simply dubbed “Number 1 Tieguanyin” by its maker, this outstanding batch combines carefully grown zhen cong (original cultivar) leaves with masterful charcoal baking.
 
Tieguanyin: Winter 2020 Premium
Smoky and rich, the aromatic complexity of this batch is the result of multiple extremely labor-intensive charcoal bakes.
