From Sanne Tea

Tie Guan Yin originated from Anxi County, China. The tea master, Zhang Nai Miao, the first generation of the Zhang family, first brought the Tie Guan Yin tea strain to Taiwan to be grown in the Mucha area in the 1890’s. Since then, the Tie Guan Yin strain has spread to other areas of Taiwan.

As the first son of a famous tea master’s family, Mr. Zhang continues the heritage of his family. He has been involved in the tea-making process from a very early age. He has learned all of the knowledge he needed to make Tie Guan Yin Tea.

The farmer’s Tie Guan Yin Tea is only made in spring and winter. Intense heat and humidity in summer and fall makes tea flavors bitter and astringent. However, the condition is perfect for making Black Tea. Due to the high demand of Traditional Tie Guan Yin, Mr. Zhang began to develop the Tie Guan Yin Black Tea based on his 50-years of Tie Guan Yin Tea experience.

To keep the merits of the Tie Guan Yin tea strain, Mr. Zhang only picked the finest tips, and made only a small amount at a time. The Tie Guan Yin Black Tea combines the velvet savory texture of Black Tea with the unique floral charm of Traditional Tie Guan Yin tea. When brewed, this handcrafted tea has a reddish brown, jujube-like color with a rich, full-bodied sweetness.

This is a different one – a tie guan yin with high oxidation and roasting. However it doesn’t come out like that – it’s on the light side, like a light roast oolong, with black tea notes. it’s pretty complex with milk bread, toasty, sweet, honey, clover, buttercup floral, bread pudding notes. No bitterness or dryness at all, so this tea can take abuse.

However, this tea lacks the richness and high roast flavor, as well as not much of a fragrance of an oolong. It doesn’t resteep as much as I hoped it would – 7 infusions.

Another from Nicole Instead of following the instructions i all out brewed this western style to see how it would fare. I’ve only ever seen tie guan yin greens, so this was a new experiment for me. This kinda feels a little like an oolong but not quite. It doesn’t have that roasty oolong taste to it but it’s not exactly a strong black tea. The flavours are muted a little… interesting for sure, but nothing crazy exciting :) Loved trying it though!

Hm. This is more a roasted oolong taste to me than a black tea. Very mineral but thin feeling. Reminds me of a cross between a lightly roasted oolong and a Darjeeling. It’s fairly dry. Per pkg directions, 30 sec, 40 sec starting at around 205F.
