Tie Guan Yin (Oolong)

Tie Guan Yin (Oolong)

Tie Guan Yin is a Chinese oolong tea that boasts a rich history and a distinct flavour profile. Its name translates to "Iron Goddess of Mercy," which is fitting given its heavenly taste and remarkable health benefits.


The tea is grown in the mountainous regions of China's Fujian province, where the climate and soil are perfectly suited for producing exceptional tea leaves. Tie Guan Yin's leaves are tightly rolled into small, dark green balls, which unfurl during steeping to reveal their full, fragrant flavour.


The aroma of Tie Guan Yin is complex, with notes of orchid and honey that mingle with a subtle roasted nuttiness. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet, with a creamy mouthfeel and a floral finish that lingers on the palate.


Aside from its delectable taste, Tie Guan Yin is renowned for its many health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, this tea is said to boost the immune system, promote healthy digestion, and reduce stress and anxiety.


To fully appreciate the flavours and benefits of Tie Guan Yin, it's best to brew it using a traditional Chinese teapot or gaiwan. Steep the leaves multiple times to fully experience the evolving flavour profile with each infusion.


Tie Guan Yin is truly a treasure among teas, a perfect choice for those seeking a transcendent tea-drinking experience.
