From Blue Dragon Tea House

Hand rolled and moderately baked by charcoal. The tea has been charcoal-fired in small batches to produce the deep green color and rich flavor that have made this tea special. The aroma of the dry leaf is deliciously sweet while the mellow honey infusion is soft, smooth and fruity. It tastes a bit sweeter and smoother than regular fresh Tie Guan Yin, and the taste stay long afterwards. It is definately for someone who prefer more roasted charcoal oolong tea.

The so-called Tie Guan Yin Tea got its name from a kind of tea tree 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. 40% 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.

I have little experience in Tie Guan Yin but I found this oolong very mild to be charcoal backed. I feel that first infusions have low power, but is more sweet than other oolongs when you steeps multiple times. The leaves are beautiful, green dark and wide, beautiful to drink in a chawan
