Tieguanyin Deep Roast

Tieguanyin Deep Roast


One of the oldest and most famous oolongs, Tieguanyin has been made since the 1800s. First produced in Fujian, China, and characterized by its eponymous cultivar and deep roasting process, the style of this tea has since evolved over the years. Now often less roasted and more floral—and produced in other areas, notably in northern Taiwan—this Tieguanyin pays tribute to the original profile.

Harvested on Ali Shan, in central Taiwan, in fall 2018, the leaves were allowed to oxidize about 35% during shaping. Several rounds of firing were completed in March 2019. A heady, grilled peach aroma is joined by sweet notes of guava and magnolia; flavors of sandalwood and resin, with a finish of dark caramel, round out the cup. Infuse many times to experience the depth of this full-bodied oolong.
