Premium Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea
Tie Guan Yin Tea got its name from a kind of tea cultivar named Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) which is an ideal material for making oolong tea. Grown in the An-xi region of China’s Fujian province, Tie Guan Yin is the world’s most renowned oolong tea. 10%-50%oxidation results in a tightly wound, uniform tea that is very dense, sage green in color and with what appears to be a light glazing of frost. The art of making Tie Guan Yin is quite complicated, particularly as the tea nears completion. It is refired one final time at a very low temperature; at this point the most distinguishing feature of the tea (the light glazing of frost) appears.
Tie Guan Yin oolong tea is high in amino acids, polyphenols and antioxidants. It contains vitamins, particularly vitamin C, and other components such as calcium, fluorine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
Flavor: Smooth, complex with sweet aftertaste
