Premium Grade Tie Guan Yin
Aromatic, flavorful with a mouthfeel that is buttery, full and sweet. This is a "cha"mazing tea from the Fujian Province of China, very famous for their oolong production. A beautiful and delicious whole leaf rolled oolong with an emerald green brewed leaf and liquor! It is full of flavor and aroma, smooth but with a bittersweet aftertaste. We are very impressed with the quality of this tea and enjoy the history that it brings along with it.
Spring 2019 and Autumn 2018 crop available in drop down menu. 2019 crop also available in 8 gram vacuum sealed bags.
Premium grade is a much higher grade of tea leaf from the same Tie Guan Yin tea plant. The leaves will be more whole and will have few imperfections. You will notice that the aroma is stronger and the taste is thicker and fuller. Higher grade tea is a simple way to bring something special to your everyday experience. People often ask us if we have Monkey Picked Oolong like the store in the mall. If you enjoy that particular tea, you will really enjoy this one.
