A fantastic tea. Frankly, I was hooked after the initial rinse. The aroma is rich, sweet in the first two infusions, full-bodied in subsequent steepings, with a roasted/toasted nutty fragrance and a slight caramel finish, reminiscent of a high-quality cigar. And the tea itself tastes just as good as it smells.

I make this in a 3.5 oz gaiwan; about 1.5 tsp of dry tea is enough to fill the pot with the expanded leaf. Short infusions yield about nine decent steepings, or three standard mug-sized cups, which makes this tea less expensive than vending machine coffee.

This tieguanyin deserves my highest rating.
