From JAS eTea

Anxi Oolong tea is famous for its autumn tea’s high flavors. This Tie Guan Yin is processed in accordance with the traditional Tie Guan Yin tea-making techniques. That is why its orchid fragrance is mixed with the tea soup. After drinking the tea soup, you will feel the soup is very delicate and full, and the whole mouth is full of sweetness and the orchid aroma is lingering between your teeth.

Normally for tea from high mountains, you will easily smell the delicate and sharp aroma after brewing. This tea is extremely infusible; after 10 times brewing, you can still taste the tea flavor in the soup. Enjoy this high mountain Tie Guan Yin.

The first real oolong tea that I had outside of a Chinese restaurant was Tie Guan Yin. I’ve had many different types from many different producers with varying results. This one, unfortunately, was one of the worse ones.

The aroma of the tea was incredibly tantalizing: sweet, buttery, honey-floral scent that filled the nostrils and lifted the spirits. However, the promises made in the aroma were not fulfilled in the taste. In fact, there was very little taste at all. The very thin body, although smooth and pleasant, had very little depth. I enjoyed smelling the tea more than I did drinking it, which sort of defeats the purpose of preparing tea.

This tea seems better off freshening up a room than pleasing the tongue. I guess this is the problem with the more modern ‘green’ style of TGY.
