I have had many TieGuanYin oolongs in my time, and never really cared for any of them. The Ti Kuan Yin, as the growers referred to it, from Xin Yuan Tea Garden in Anxi County, China, changed the definition of TieGuanYin oolongs to me.

The freshness of this tea can be recognized the moment that the container is opened. The tea leaves have a fresh bright green to fresh dark green color. The aroma of orchids is present from the dry leaves through the many infusions that the leaves provide. The flavor of the tea can be summed up in two descriptions: orchids and honeydew melons. This tea provides an incredible flowery essence on the breath that can be felt for minutes after a sip is finished.

The tea liquor has the color of light honeydew melon, with a light-medium body, a silky texture, and a comforting energy. Six infusions is not an unreasonable expectation, and depending on the steeping method, these leaves may give you seven or more enjoyable infusions.

Most of the leaves are whole and unbroken, with some edges showing the slight reddish tint of oxidation. There are no bare stems. These leaves are beautiful to observe.

Flavors: Honeydew, Orchid
