From The Tea Table

From China’s Fujian Province, Superior Ti Kuan Yin is a hand-made oolong with a complex flavor/aroma. A bit darker than the Jade Oolong with a more intense flavor and characteristic orchid-like aroma. Use one heaping teaspoon per cup and steep 1.5-2 minutes in near boiling water.

Very nice. The fruity tones hit you first; doesn’t lose its quality when it cools.

Selected my last tea of 2009 to be this one. It has a tightly rolled up leaf dark green in color. The aroma of the dry leaf is mild, with a sweet floral and slightly fruity aroma. I brewed it for about 3 minutes. The brew was a moderate greenish yellow color fairly typical for an oolong. The flavor is not as bold as I was expecting from this oolong. For being “superior” I think I expected more. It’s a very nice flavor but suggests I need more leaf next time. The leaf did not completely unfurl after the 1st steep so I later tried another steeping, adding another minutes. It came out just as tasty as before. The leaf unfurled the rest of the way and the leaf is full and beautiful. Size wise they are small to medium leaf. It’s quite a beautiful tea visually. While I’m not an oolong expert but I was expecting a little more for a “superior” grade tea.
