China - Tie Guan Yin Iron Buddha
Our Tie Guan Yin Choice delivers the powerful fragrance and balanced aroma that we can expect out of a high-end tea. Excellent value for money. Oolong tea is semi fermented which is one of the reasons it has such a unique character. The semi fermentation gives the tea a little bit more body than a green tea but less body than a black tea ... and interestingly it gives the flavour a very unique twist. You will see (particularly in the infused leaf) that the edges of the leaves are slightly bruised (brownish). The reason for this is that the leaves are lightly bruised to start the oxidation process.There are several grades of Ti Kuan Yin and Iron Buddha is an absolute premium grade.
