From The Tea Table

Surpassing the quality of the commonly available budget Ti Kuan Yins, this grade from the Chinese Anxi County is a terrific value. Don’t be fooled by the low price. Its golden-yellow liquor is smooth and fragrant, carrying a refreshing, fruity aroma as well as the sought-after orchid-like flavor. A sweet smokiness not usually found in Ti Kuan Yins adds a pleasant and surprising depth. Use one heaping teaspoon per cup and steep 2 minutes in near boiling water.

Ti kuan yin tastes like Juicy Fruit to me, so I have a predisposition to taste that flavor, whether it’s present or not. In this case, it was strong and pronounced when this cup was fresh. After it cooled, not so much. More like sweet cereal now, but it has a heavy, silky feel in the mouth.

I’d probably like this one. Juicy Fruit was my favorite gum when I was growing up.

I tried this iced via the cold steep method. After 20 hours of steeping in the fridge, it produces a medium yellow brew (no, this is not my urine sample) with a light grassy, wheat-y smell, and an equally delicate, similar taste. I didn’t add ice because a) it was cold enough from the fridge, and b) I thought diluting it would remove the taste. This is quite drinkable and tasty. I’m planning on bringing the rest of the pitcher to work to serve for breakfast for my co-workers, with some banana bread I made last night. I hope they’ll like it. 95 degrees in the shade here, heat indexes up to 105—keep hydrated, I plan to with more of this iced tea!

This tea didn’t knock my socks off, but it was good. It did not have a flavor that lingered for a long period of time, nor did it have quite as round and beautiful flavor as many other I have had. The tea though get extra points for being so inexpensive($1.75 for an ounce).
