Dragon's Eye Charcoal Muzha Tieguanyin

When we walked into the amazing garden nestled in the hills above Taipei City in 2018 we got asked the usual question. "What are you doing here?" When we answered that we were looking for agrochemical free, dragon's eye charcoal roasted, authentic Muzha Tieguanyin he laughed and said, "well you found the only one!" And we are glad we did. Certainly charcoal roasted, but not to the point of tasting like an ashtray like many Muzha teas, this tea is a beautiful version of the rich, dark tea that is the favorite of so many. Complex notes of vanilla, white grapes and just a hint of smoke meet those who want to try this tea. A spring 2017 pick, this tea is just about right age wise and is really coming into its own. And it will only get better with age...
