Our Tie Guan Yin comes from a small family farm in Muzha. Authentic Tie Guan Yin from Taiwan has to be made from special cultivar called "red heart twisted tail" (紅心歪尾桃), and this one is also traditionally processed, meaning higher level of oxidation / fermentation than modern “green” TGY.
Amazing aroma is very sweet, butter like creamy with notes of various fruit, toasted rice and very subtle florals. Liquor is very smooth, thick and sweet, complementing notes of sweet fruit with touch of fresh citrus, butter cookies like creamy notes, with touch of toffee and golden toast like warmth coming from roasting.
Beautiful tea made by the same family as our 2018 Tie Guan Yin, that was one of the first teas offered in our shop. It is equally good if not better, and something that every fan of oolong and especially Tie Guan Yin should experience.
