Prep: gongfu cha (gaiwan)
If you are new to oolong teas, I think this is a great introduction. Nice floral aromas, smooth finish with every steep increasing in flavor until around steep #4 where the flavor is packed with intensity.
According to legend, this special grade of Tie Guan Yin (Ti Kwan Yin) tea leaves used to be picked by trained monkeys from rare tea trees on the top of highest mountains in Anxi, Fujian province. It is known as the King of Teas in China. Exquisite jade green leaves that are rolled into small pellets. The floral aroma is captivating and the rich, complex flavors will keep you sipping again and again. Pay attention to the sweet lingering aftertaste that comes from back of your throat, filling your mouth and breath with wonderful fragrance.
