This is the highest grade of Tie Guan Yin normally available. Picked in a small window of just 2 days during the spring and autumn harvest and hand-processed in small batches to achieve a high level of aroma and full Guan Yin taste! Also known as AAA Grade!

I tried this tea a few months ago , loved it , but failed to write a review at the time.

This is the BEST Tie Guan Yin I’ve ever had. It has an amazing floral bouquet. It’s very light with not a hint of bitterness. There’s a bit of sweetness and buttery flavour to round out that great floral aroma and taste.

This tea is expensive but I say it is worth it and plan on getting some if I place an order in the future (and there’s still some left).

Flavors: Butter, Floral

I’ve never considered myself a big fan of green oolongs, but if I keep on tasting teas like this, I may be a convert.

And it turns out this has to have been one of the best teas I’ve had in ages! The dry leaf of this tea looks exquisite: beautiful, dark emerald green nuggets. It smells exquisite, too: lovely, floral, creamy, and fresh. You can really tell that this tea was harvested only a few months ago. Normally the floralness of green oolongs turn me off because they have a weird sort of astringency to them, but this tea is mild and light.

I thought I left a review on this tea but I don’t see it up here. Oh well ,I’ll just have to have it again so I can leave a review. I know I loved it before. This tea will ruin me for any other Tie Guan Yin teas. It’s that good.

This is by far perfection in a cup. The leaf consists of small vibrant emerald curled to resemble claws. These delectable treats smell of spring in full swing. The scent was like a deep vegetal garden with flowers blooming all over. I placed these sweet smelling herbs in my yixing and shook em up. The scent deepened to an oceanic seaweed that was mixed with forest moss covered it dew. I brewed up and prepared for my mind to be blown. The taste of this brew brings the phrase “nectar of the gods” to mind. I really can’t describe it. The flavor is rich, creamy, vegetal, floral, and transcending. With each sip, my mouth is left with a thick warm coating of milky goodness, hahah. This is by far the best TGY I’ve ever had, and I highly recommend it to anyone. The aroma, taste, and leaf quality was completely on point. This will definitely be something worth showing off.
