From Taiwan Sourcing

Classical Tie Guan Yin is made from 100% Hong Xin Wai Wei Tao Varietal "紅心歪尾桃" and has to be processed in a certain way for it to be qualified as such. The price is rather stiff for most of the tea lovers out there. Fortunately for us there is this Tie Guan Yin that is a perfect blend of Hong Xin Wai Wei Tao Varietal "紅心歪尾桃" and Jin Xuan (金萱) that is processed and roasted like the aforementioned classical Tie Guan Yin. The two varietals are grown in the same garden and then blended together at the beginning of the roasting stage.



It is not only affordable, but also contains the beautiful body of true Taiwanese Tie Guan Yin teas. Recommended for every TGY lover, and also a perfect warming tea on colder days.

Wow, what a great brew. The dry leaf is fairly roasted. Nice bouquet of cereal and faint floral. I used a small celadon tea pot and the soup was bronze indeed, sweet honey, apricot pit, thick but not too roasted. Very good structure throughout its steeps as I’m at 10 now and there is still a lot of flavor and color. Cant wait to try the Dong Ding I purchased from them as well. Taiwan Sourcing, don’t miss it.

New oolong players, Taiwan Sourcing!

First to review this it seems…

Pretty dark roast, this oolong surprisingly does not overwhelm with “roastiness”, no burnt taste.

The first note I got was cannabis… How do I know what cannabis tastes like? Well…i’ll leave that to your imagination ;-)

Eucalyptus follows….A fresh mouthfeel.

Dried fruit sweetness as well. A caramel feel, thickness in the mouth.

It rendered many steeps.

The liquor is this amazing amber bronze color, it does wear its name pretty well.

A beautiful tea.

I must say I’m very impressed with the quality I have found in Taiwan Sourcing products so far. With Scott Wilson (Yunnan Sourcing) behind it, why am I not surprised?

Good luck to them! I’m officially a fan :-)

TheTeaFairy

Um…cannabis is a medicinal plant that gives intense cha qi?? Hence often used in tea description?

LOL! My daughter gave me a Baja hoodie today. I thought it was cool surfer gear but she advised me that nowadays it is a “drug rug” or “stoner hoodie.” When I tried it on, I shoved a Baggie of oolong from Whole Foods in the front pouch right away and went around offering everyone some “leaf.”

TheTeaFairy

That was hilarious Ashmanra!
