Ti Kuan Yin
Ti Kuan Yin is commonly known as “Iron Goddess of Mercy.” It is considered to be the finest oolong from China and competition-grade Ti Kuan Yins sell at upwards of thousands of dollars per pound. After sampling many versions of this popular rolled oolong, we decided on this one. Its tiny blue-green pellets emit aromas of flowers and field grasses. The crisp yellow infusion smells mellow, buttery and floral, and tastes summery, smooth and sweet. Notes of gardenias and orchids are complemented with decadently rich, creamy undertones. As you reinfuse the leaves, the flavor becomes brighter and greener. A clean, lasting, floral finish makes it an ideal choice for pairing with homemade fruit, nut or vanilla puddings.
