From driftwood tea

Tie Guan Yin or Iron buddha is perhaps China’s most famous Oolong. We sourced this handmade version from a small farm in Anxi County, in China’s Fujian Province, and believe this to be one of the finest Tie Guan Yins, or even teas, any of us at driftwood have ever tasted.

Key Flavours: A sweet honey note, lively florals with a smooth buttery finish.

This is really a delightful Tie Guan Yin. Sweet, light and creamy. I like that I’m not getting a really heavy floral note, some Tie Guan Yins tend to be so overly floral and it’s almost inundating, not the case with this first cup (the result of my first two infusions following the rinse) … this is light and refreshing, with a nice buttery taste that hits the palate toward the end of the sip and lingers a little in the after taste. Looking forward to a few more infusions with this!


infusions 3 & 4 produce a cup that is slightly more floral, with an emphasis on the slightly there. Still quite lovely and delicate.

Sweet, Creamy, light, a pure delight! Good for multiple infusions! I like the 2nd one just as good if not better than the first! A Might Fine Tie Guan Yin! Lovely!
