China "Heavy Roast Tie Guan Yin" Oolong Tea
- ORIGIN: Fujian, China
- DESCRIPTION: An expertly roasted and aged Tie Guan Yin oolong with a profoundly deep and complex flavor
- FLAVOR: Warm caramel and mineral notes, with a unique roasted sweetness
Appropriately named after the Iron Goddess of Mercy, oolong teas of this style are very popular and offer a complex flavor profile. This tea in particular undergoes a careful baking process that leads to a significantly deep and profound warm aroma. Its long and tricky production process leads to relatively low available quantities each season.
We recommend trying this tea prepared iced, sweet, and creamy.
