Today I am reviewing a 2020 spring-harvested 2020 Anxi Dan Gui tea from a company known as Verdant Tea.
They state that the grower of this tea is a ‘Master Zhang’ from Daping Village in Anxi, China.
Master Zhang’s family has tended a variety of tea cultivars in Daping for generations. His tea is fed by sweet mountain springs and grows on the cloud-enveloped peaks of Anxi. – Verdant Tea
