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, the farmer 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 tea lovers. Complex notes of vanilla, white grapes and just a hint of smoke dazzle those who 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 a little aging...

Bought it as a gift.

I have purchased this but have not tasted this tea as I bought as a gift for someone else. I must say I am very impressed with the speed at which I received the package and the amazing customer service! Five stars all the way!!

Beautiful, sweet

I LOVE this tea. Tried out a 10g sampler and it blew me away. It's really sweet, but still smoky. I enjoyed it both hot in a gaiwan and cold brewed overnight in fridge.

The real deal...

I can really recommend this tea. You won't find real traditional Tieguanyin that often anymore. They are all processed much greener. In my opinion, the greener ones are pretty hyped up, but maybe also because they are much easier to produce and less labor intensive.
