Really disappointing. The first steeping was really lacking in flavour and I was hoping for better with the second, but it also failed to deliver on the promised aroma and sweet taste. I liked the Ti Kuan Yin from The Tea Centre much, much better than this.
Tie Guan Yin Light
Tie Guan Yin is known for its mesmerising flavour. Exhibiting large leaves, this Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy / Tieh Kwan Yin) is from the home of many excellent oolong, FuJian(China).
Due to its popularity, Tie Guan Yin (Tieh Kwan Yin / Tie Kun Yin /Iron Goddess of Mercy) comes in many grades and prices.
Traditionally Tie Guan Yin goes through a higher fermentation process and is then dry-finished by roasting, to give it a bolder taste, with a hint of “toastiness”.
The newer variation of Tie Guan Yin is lighter in fermentation (like this one), possessing a sweeter taste and an aromatic spell that is hard to resist!
Ingredients: oolong (Camellia Sinensis)
