Monkey Picked (Ma Liu Mie)
A competition grade Tieguanyin Oolong from the An Xi Region of Fujian Province. Our supplier for this tea is well-known for his craftmanship. This tea is lightly oxidized, leaves show shades of green and hints of brown. As the leaves steep, they unfurl and show a serration on their edges as they release a honey–colored liquor with an orchid–like flavor that will linger. Briefly rinse the leaves to awaken them, then steep in water at 185–200 degrees for one minute and taste. This Oolong is very rich and will steep multiple times as the leaves release their complex flavors.
