From Yunnan Sourcing

This is the highest grade of Tie Guan Yin we have ever come across. It’s unique to Gan De village and cannot be beat in terms of taste and aroma. It can be infused many many times each time yielding a distinctive thick “Guan Yin” aroma and taste. Expansive in the mouth and throat. Grown naturally and hand-processed at every stage makes this tea best of the best!

Limited to just 7 kilograms in total.

Comes pre-packed in 7 gram individual packs. Each pack has two layers two seal the tea in and ensure freshness. We recommend you store in your freezer sealed in plastic until the time of brewing.

Color and style of outer packaging shown in the pictures may differ slightly from that given.

I thought I had left a review on this tea. I had a small sample which I’ve enjoyed a few teas from and finished it off today. One of the best tie guan Yin’s I’ve ever had. Floral and buttery, smooth & sweet. It never stops through each infusion. This tea is worth every cent you have to pay for it.

This sample was from last year and was still amazing today. Glad I finished it off while it’s still good. Nothing worse than letting amazing tea go to waste.

Holy moly.

To date, this is the best Oolong I’ve ever had. And that’s coming from someone whose named after the drink.

Due to the high cost of this tea I only performed one session with it. It’s floral/melon/butter taste stayed consistent through out my session. It lasted for a little over a dozen steeps and stayed incredibly smooth through out. It was light, but at the same time so full of flavor.

I would highly reccomend this tea for anyone. It sweet delecateness was mind blowing. This is something I’ll order more of…

It was really good. I’m going to add more to my order next time I place something through Yunnan Sourcing.

Thank you! Since YunnanSourcing had a sale I took advantage and ordered 50g worth. I couldn’t just let this tea slip away.
