2020 - ZISUN (heirloom)

$15.00

  • This tea is farmed organically in a beautiful valley between two forested mountains.  The heirloom cultivar was reportedly used by Lu Yu (陸羽), China's celebrated 'Tea Sage' since the Tang Dynasty.

    Zhang Wen Hua's tea brings smiles to the O5 team every year.  This batch of Zisun is no different.  In a warm gaiwan, the dry leaves yield a beautiful aroma of celery with hints of lime peel.  The brew is naturally sweet, with the texture of soybean.  After drinking your tea and allowing your cup to dry, a beautiful aroma of apple remains.
