Premium (AA) Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea
Also known as "Iron Goddess of Mercy", Tie Guan Yin is one of China's famous teas. It's very lightly oxidized, in many ways being closer to a green tea than a typical oolong. This style of processing has become popular among many oolongs produced in Anxi County in Fujian Province. The flavor is heady and intensely floral, with spinach-like vegetal notes and a pale yellow tea soup.
Our Premium Grade Tie Guan Yin was autumn harvested, which tends to produce a lower yield than the spring harvest, but a more potent aroma and flavor. It is shipped in vacuum-sealed 50 gram pouches as it arrived from China, to best protect its freshness.
Harvest: Autumn 2016
