Deluxe Tieguanyin Oolong Loose Leaf Tea
Origin: Nantou County, Central Taiwan
Plucking Season: Spring
Introduction: Authentic Tieguanyin oolong made from a distinct varietal of the tea plant known as “red hue kwan yin’ produces the best quality. This is because this plant varietal produces the fuschia tip and tender buds ideal for making the tieguanyin taste. The original producing area of Tieguanyin oolong teas is Xiping village of Anxi County in Fujian province, China. Many plants were also transplanted into Nantou County in Taiwan. Tieguanyin is probably the most complex oolong to make, requiring 10-13 different rolling actions and proper baking temperatures. In terms of the color spectrum, there are many types of Tieguanyin - from the greener lightly roasted, to the dark and heavily roasted. Deluxe Tieguanyin is in the middle of the color spectrum.
Flavor Profile: Deluxe Tieguanyin has a full bodied amber brew, sweet aftertaste, and lingering fragrance.
