Our TieGuanYin fills your palate with notes of nectarine and honeydew and has a heady, floral aroma of gardenia and mulberry. If you drink green tea or black tea you will come to appreciate this premium and sophisticated oolong. A green tea drinker can appreciate its strong floral fragrance sans grassiness and black tea drinkers will appreciate its nuttier and sweeter taste sans “astringency.” Smooth and subtle, a great introduction to Oolong for green and black tea drinkers.
TieGuanYin are extremely rare and hard to come by, especially one of this caliber. It was crafted using traditional Formosa oolong methods: medium oxidation at roughly 35% to bring out fruity notes, rolling, and a firing to halt the oxidization process. Compare with other unroasted TieGuanYin oxidized to 20% and taste the difference!
