Premium (AA) Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea

Regular price $10.50 Sale

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
