Tie Guan Yin - Selected Grade

Our specially selected grade Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea is chosen for its wonderfully long lasting and strong floral aromatic fragrance that is reminiscent of sweet lily and honeysuckle and orchids and it’s rich and creamy flavours that linger in your month for ages.  This tea is refreshingly invigorating and energising.  The leaves are bright green and rolled into tight little balls, and when infused they produce an elegant light yellow liquor a with silky texture.  The complexity of this tea is best enjoyed when exhaling through the nose while keeping a sip of the tea in the mouth. The strong floral aroma will travel up through the nostrils enhancing the experience.

Tie Guan Yin is also known as Iron Buddha and Iron Goddess of Mercy. This famous Chinese Oolong comes from the Anxi County, Fujian, and can be processed in two styles – the unroasted or bouquet style and the browned or roasted style.  Our selected grade Tie Guan Yin is a lightly oxidised and unroasted Oolong.

Our Tue Guan Yin makes an excellent pick-me-up cup to have on the go when more energy is needed.  The leaves can be enjoyed for multiple infusions and when brewed in the gong-fu style you can fully appreciate the full characteristics of this complex tea.

This tea is individually vacuum packed in a small foil bags that each contains 8g of tea. Each tin contains 8 x 8g foil bags.
