Tieh kuan yin
Anxi Tieh kuan yin tea belongs to a family of teas from southern Fujian Province called Ming Nan Oolong.
It is characterized by light oxidation and heavy rolling. Using the baorou technique, it is wrapped in cloths and rolled into tightly knitted balls.
These balls are so dense that they are often described as iron-like. It has a glossy appearance, with granulated green color, red spots and white frost.
It has a unique taste called Guanyin Rhyme (Yin Yun), which can be described as outstanding orchid fragrance and nectar sweet taste.
Scientists found that the Tieh kuan yin tea plant's succulent leaves contain the highest level of aromatic substances, especially at low to medium temperature.
For those who have difficulty grasping the subtleties of high grade greens, this oolong tea may seem "god-sent". Its orchid aroma is strong, lasting and after many infusions, simply intoxicating.
