From New Mexico Tea Company

Tie Guan Yin is sweet and thick with a hint of a orchid after taste.

Oolong tea is semi oxidized which is one of the reasons it has such a unique character. You will see (particularly in the infused leaf) that the edges of the leaves are slightly bruised (brownish). The reason for this is that the leaves are lightly bruised to start the oxidation process.

I bought this tea nearly a month ago, but it’s time to finish it off. Oolongs are so special, that I have a tendency to hoard them as long as possible, and avoid drinking them daily. However, this tea is fairly priced and is an excellent quality.

The first loose leaf that I was introduced to was a Tie Guan Yin, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I suppose my love for an oolong comes from that moment where I realized that I love tea, possibly more than coffee (which is true now). My roommate opened my eyes more and more as I began my tea journey, but eventually I hit the ground running, and explored more teas on my own. Although, he admittedly acknowledges that I may have excelled his tea knowledge; for he is still drinking Tie Guan Yin and Dragonwell, while I drink nearly EVERYTHING. Those are two very good teas that I don’t blame him for drinking everyday; however, I like to change it up on teas every once and a while.

Anyway, this is nutty, earthy, sweet, and smooth. It’s light and easy to drink more than you’d ever imagine you could. That’s because it’s a solid tea! With that said, I’m going to buy more to hoard soon!

Something about TGY flavour that is so special


It’s a special tea that I’m grateful for trying a few years back. It literally changed the way I thought about tea.

A delicious “green” oolong – aromatic, floral, balanced. Stands up to multiple infusions.
