From The Tea Kings

This award winning (and very limited) batch of tea comes from a 150 year old plantation in Muzha, in the Wenshan district of Taiwan. The Muzha region is famous for their roasted tieguanyin oolong, a deeply oxidized style that offers a richer flavor and darker liquor than the “jade” or Anxi style.

This particular tieguanyin comes from the Zishan tea garden, a certified organic farm, and roasted under the careful supervision of two tea masters, one with over sixty years of experience. The tea was grown at 500 meters, and picked during the November/December harvest of 2014.

This tea is officially one of the finest in the world. This coal fired tieguanyin won first place in it’s category at the North American Tea Championship, and we’re fortunate to have reserved this batch before the award was won — this tea is completely sold out in North America, so this is a remarkable opportunity!

Dry leaf – light to dark brown rolled leaves, wonderful chocolate aroma with hints of bourbon.

Wet leaf – Very fragrant dark cherry, chocolate

Liquor – Crystal clear light orange

Mouthfeel – Nothing too exciting

Taste – The roast is not overpowering yet it’s a high roast tea. The time between the actual roasting and now has probably helped. Very well balanced and a huge improvement over some others I have had that were too roast-heavy. This allows some nice fruit notes like black cherry and raisin to come through. Very sweet fruit notes, but balanced with a coffee-like roastiness.

Aftertaste – starts out chocolaty, then becomes coffee-like, and then finally a wonderful leafy tea perfume comes through— amazing that the tea perfume wasn’t lost in the roasting. The aftertaste in the third infusion is the nice apple peel flavor that I find in good roasted oolongs. Perhaps the aftertaste is the real highlight of this great tea.
