As you take a sip of Tieguanyin, you are transported to a field of blooming orchids. The delicate fragrance of the flowers fills your senses, and the light, champagne-colored liquor refreshes your palate.
This oolong has a mellow taste with a slight sweetness in the aftertaste. It is one of the most famous teas in China and has been produced in Anxi County since 1723. The tea leaves are hand-rolled into thin strips, which gives the tea its distinctive shape. This traditional method of production takes longer than using a machine, but it results in a superior flavor that is more similar to green tea than other types of Taiwanese oolong.
Whether you are enjoying a cup of Tieguanyin on its own or sharing it with friends, you are sure to appreciate its unique flavor and refreshing aroma.
