From Tealuxe

Ti Quan Yin means “Iron Goddess of Mercy”. This superb grade of the famed China oolong has a nutty flavor and bouquet and is indeed fit for an “Iron Goddess.” It can be brewed traditionally or gongfu-style.

This is a decent green-style example of Ti Quan Yin. It’s fresh, has a strong floral breath, and holds ginger, ginseng, and lychee throughout. Towards the throat, this tea brings a slightly sour tang and then finishes clean. I think it would benefit from a little roasting, but in this form it works well as something bright and smooth.

Not the most complex TGY, but I still get it every trip I take to Boston. Lightly toasted to bring out a nutty profile on top of its characteristic florals. Starts as a thick, flowery caramel liquor with a mildly astringent flavor that builds in the mouth and throat. Subsequent steepings reveal high floral notes, eventually settling into toasty astringincey. Brewed gong fu style (3tsp in a 200ml pot), lasts through 5+ steepings (not including the rinse).

The flavor is very strong, but well-balanced and smooth. There is indeed a lingering, nutty aftertaste that makes this tea satisfying.
