Tieguanyin, which translates to 'Iron Goddess of Mercy', is one of the most famous teas from China and for good reason. Vegetal butter notes up front with a floral backend and a smooth honeyed finish. Think of sweet orchid-like notes which unfold with each steep!
This tea is processed in modern style, which means less oxidation and minimal roasting, resulting in a fresher floral flavor profile. Unlike other teas where older tea plants are preferred, prized Tieguanyin comes from younger tea plants ranging in age from 3 to 10 years. This tea can be steeped multiple times and you will see full tea leaves open up by your 2nd or 3rd steep with subtle variations in flavor throughout each steep.
