A nice, slightly buttery, very floral oolong. It has a little more flavor at a higher temp but I like the multiple steeps I can get out of it at a lower temp. This one is one of the husband’s favorites.

Our competition grade Ti Kuan Yin is one of the best available. This Monkey Picked takes the treasured characteristics of a Ti Kuan Yin to the extreme. We recommend preparing this quiet, fine oolong gungfu style so as to be able to enjoy many infusions. Use a small brewing vessel such as a Guywan or Yixing pot, add a very generous amount of leaves, stop the first infusion after only about 30 seconds. This first infusion is considered by many to be the best for aroma. Try a second and a third infusion. Every infusion will reveal new nuances until finally the flavor will fade.
