Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea - Premium


Product Description

Tie Guan Yin is among the best and most popular oolong teas in the world. The tea is named after Guanyin (or Kannon) the bodhisattva of compassion and mercy. This medium bodied tea has a very refined and complex flavour - sweet with some floral notes. There is a very light creaminess reminiscent of milk oolong and the aftertaste is long lasting and sweet like a sugar cookie.

Region: Anxi County, Fujian Province, China

Other Names: Iron Goddess, Tie Kuan Yin, Iron Guanyin, 


Steeping Guide:

Teaware: Glass or ceramic Gaiwan

Amount: 3g /1½ teaspoons

Temperature: 100°c (212°F)

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.

*These steeping directions are for a traditional Gong Fu style tea, if you are brewing this tea in a regular cup we recommend steeping for 2 – 3 minutes. This tea can be steeped 4 times.
