2019 Huang Guan Yin (黃觀音) means "Yellow Goddess of Mercy", and is a cross breed between two famous cultivars, Huang Jin Gui and Tie Guan Yin. Introduced in 2003 by Fujian Tea Research Institute it’s sometimes called simply no 105. This cultivar is usually low roasted to preserve its aroma, but our tea master have decided that medium roasting will give it much more depth. This produced incredibly sweet tea with broad tapestry of flavors and incredible minerality and rock rhyme / Yan Yun (岩韻). Due to its dualistic nature it’s common to taste in one sip flavors of baked goods and dark fruits with floral or even vegetal notes.
