Mentioning Weinan Oolong Tea, I think everyone will immediately think of Anxi Tieguanyin. In fact, in Anxi, in addition to Tieguanyin, there are also color tea and big leaf oolong. As early as the 1950s, the commodity inspection department divided the Anxi oolong tea into three categories: Tieguanyin, color tea and oolong in order to facilitate identification and classification. So what is color tea? In fact, color tea is a small category belonging to the Oolong tea category. Except for Tieguanyin and Oolong, other varieties are classified into color tea. The most famous ones are Benshan, Meizhan, Maoxie, Huangdan and so on.

Although this mountain tea and Tieguanyin are considered “close relatives”, the growth and adaptability are better than Tieguanyin. It is quite similar to Tieguanyin and is difficult to distinguish.
