This leans toward the darker side of tie guan yins rather than the brighter, loftier toned versions. The first steep is smokey and even somewhat musty, but with a little focus I picked up the familiar tie guan yin flavor profile lying underneath. The second steep was delicious, floral front and smooth. The third steep suffered a sharp dropoff in flavor, but certainly was still drinkable. Three steeps, three surprises.

Pretty dull for a TGY, some bitterness I never worked my way around… maybe a longer rinse is in order. Also a very mineral taste. It’s interesting, but not exciting. Pleasant enough to keep drinking, but maybe not worth the price.

I bought this tea because I was running low on my fresh TGY from Verdant, and wanted to find one I could use as a daily drinker (I love Verdant’s, but unless it’s on sale like when I bought it I tend to only drink it occasionally.) I brewed this at the same time and temperature I give all my oolongs when I’m first trying them, ~185 for 30 seconds, increasing by 5 seconds each steep. This tea is not bad, though not as subtle and complex as Verdant’s. Its floral taste is a bit stronger than I imagined, so I might tone down the steeping time next time I brew this. It seems to be a decent daily drinker, but will by no means replace Verdant’s as my fancier TGY.

Two steepings, 4 min each, 190 deg F. First steeping tasted nutty, second steep tasted earthy and more full bodied. Steepings after the second yielded tasteless results. This is a dark Ti Guan Yin that needs a lot of room for leaves to unfurl.
