Most of the Muzha Tieguanyin made nowadays is rather expensive and rarely meets the standards we have in terms of sustainability. Tieguanyin is a varietal and a processing method. Our Tea of the Month was made using Tieguanyin processing but with Buddha’s Palm varietal trees grown on ecological gardens in Shi Ding. These gardens are protected by Master Tsai Yizhe’s Tea Mountain Preservation Society. This beautiful organization helps farmers transition to sustainable organic or even ecological gardens by agreeing to buy all their tea for a set term (usually ten years). The tea is then shared between a large group of tea lovers who all get an equal share of the production, as well as the opportunity to visit the farm and participate in the production. This frees the farmer from worrying about creating a certain quantity of tea, which is usually a factor in why they choose agrochemicals and it also provides them with a guaranteed, stable income that can improve their life in many ways. Tea lovers are happy and the farmers are too. Iron Guanyin is an amazing Tieguanyin, processed traditionally and from a very nice farm. This tea is great for drinking or perfect for aging.
Each packet is 50 grams.
