I have come across many varieties of TieGuanYin from many terroirs, but none of the highly oxidized varieties have impressed me as much as the Thea Kuan Imm Oolong from Thai Tea Suwirun Garden, located in Mueang, Chiang Rai Province, Thailand. That is why I have decided to import this tea and offer it through The Tea Journeyman Shop.
The experience begins with the sweet brown sugar and molasses aroma of the dry leaves. Upon infusion, inviting scents of baked apples, brown sugar, and honey fill the room. These scents carry over nicely in the taste, resulting in a sweet, satisfying liquor with a medium body. As usual, the tea leaves can be used four or more times, and will provide a satisfying infusion each time.
This Thea Kuan Imm Thai Oolong Tea was not just a little better than the other medium to highly oxidized TieGuanYins that I have had, it was leaps and bounds better. The feedback on this tea has been overwhelmingly positive. Cheers!
