From JK Tea Shop

High-roasted Tie Guan Yin is famous for its thick Tie Guan Yin flavor and thick taste. Besides, many old tea drinkers would like to drink this kind of high-roasted Tie Guan Yin to warm their stomachs and refresh themselves in the early morning, especially the aged high-roasted Tie Guan Yin, which is much milder to the stomach, but with good taste and lingering sweetness.

This TGY is produced in 2009, and re-baked them in 2010, and is mainly exported to Taiwan. So its meets the European minimum residue level standard. It is like Pu Er tea, which can be aged naturally. Don’t need to put this tea in the freezer.

Dry Leaf: I get a nice smooth roasted or toasted grain like aroma or even a caramel type of aroma.
Wet Leaf: I get a heavy roasted like charcoal type of aroma but there is a slight fruit type of aroma the opens up some sweetness. But, the roasted charcoal aroma is the main player in the aroma.
Liquor: Golden yellow brown type of color.
Taste: I get a smooth roasted flavor like peanut and oats with a charcoal flavor over it. There is a fruit type of flavor that adds the sweetness to this tea and I even get a light kiss of floral in this tea. The broth of this tea has a nice thickness feel in the mouth.
Vessel: 100 ml gaiwan (3 oz) and used 5 grams of leaf.
Overall Opinion: I give this a 89 my way of scoring. This was a enjoyable tea and maybe one to try for the people who are lighter Tie Guan Yin tea drinkers and want to transition over to roasted.
