From Grand Tea

High mountain tikuanyin has the velvety smooth clean taste and a typical floral fragrance of high grade tikuanyin. It is a semi-fermented tea which retains all of the nutrients and natural healing factors contained in unfermented green tea, but without the “raw” grassy taste and harsh impact on the stomach that make green tea disagreeable to some people.

I believe this was another lovely selection The Purrfect Cup sent me! Thanks!!!

This is an exquisite tikuanyin! Just a touch of grassy taste under the fresh floral tastes. It’s not minty but it gives you that freshness you seek in the aftertaste. It’s quite gratifying, really! YUMX2!

Received this as a sample with my Grand Tea order. I’ve largely moved away from Tie Guan Yins in favor of Taiwanese high mountain oolongs. Still there are times when a nice flowery tea can be enjoyable.

As far as TGYs go, this is one of the best I’ve come across. The bright emerald green leaves are nearly all pristine and unbroken. It has an aroma of fragrant orchids and vanilla. The liquid is a clean, well balanced orchid flavor accented with cream and a subtle sweetness in the aftertaste. This is a very smooth tea without any astringency or off flavors. There are no vegetal notes, butter, or minerals here, it’s all about the exquisite floral taste.

I steeped 4g of this tea in 120ml using water just off the boil. After a rinse, I steeped it 8 times starting with 6s and then adding 3s to each successive infusion.

Thank you, LuckyMe, for sending me directly to the Grand Tea webpage to fill my cart with all the things. Thankfully, I had the good sense to close the page before I confirmed my purchase because, well, you know.
