Tieguanyin Medium Roast

Tieguanyin Medium Roast


Tightly rolled and made in many styles, Tieguanyin is one of the best-known oolongs from China. Legend relates the story of how the tea was named after Kuanyin, the goddess of compassion.

This tea was grown on at 3,300 feet in the mountains of Anxi, in Fujian Province. It is darker than the local standard, as it has been roasted for several hours, and then finished for over charcoal. The resulting depth of flavor has notes of peach and other stone fruits. Enjoy it gongfu style: use a large amount of leaf, short infusion times, and steep several rounds.
