Dark Roast TieGuanYin
Smoky, sweet caramel and dark chocolate flavors were developed when this highly oxidized TieGuanYin was baked at a high temperature using a charcoal firing. A full, rich brew that delivers a full roasted infusion with solid notes of cinnamon and amber. Good for 5+ infusions.

Water: 6 oz.; 200-212°F
Tea Leaves: 5 grams
Steep Time: 2 min. 30 sec.
In a 6 oz. vessel, place 5 grams of tea and pour 205 degree water directly into the center of the cup. Steep for 2 minutes 30 seconds (more or less adjusted to your preference) on the initial brew, halving the time on the second brew, and then increasing that in increments of 30 seconds for subsequent brews. For lighter infusions, use hotter water and half the brew time.
