This is a fabulous Ti Kuan Yin! The leaves are darker in color than a “green” Ti Kuan Yin which suggested to me that these leaves were subjected to a roasting, and that is evident in the fragrance and flavor. A delicious, toasted nutty aroma fills the air while that delicious, toasted nutty taste washes over my palate.

Sweet, nutty, flavorful. Hints of fruit. This first cup (my first two infusions) is light and crisp, and yet hints at a stronger tasting broth when I resteep. So this is something I definitely WILL do!

My second cup (infusions 3 & 4) was stronger in flavor, more toasted/roasted taste, with the caramel/honey tones emerging beautifully. I’m loving this more and more… A really lovely Oolong!

Thank you for your appreciation. This Taiwan Muzha Tin Kuan Yin is made by most traditional fermenting method , not like “Green Ti Kuan Yin” is a new popular taste in China. I haven’t figured out why people’s taste have changed. Personally, I love the traditional or original taste of Tin Kuan Yin.

To made such high quality of Tin Kuan Yin, it is required to take over 20 steps to turn freshly plucked tea leaf into finished tea within 24-30 hours.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
