More About Fine Ti Kuan Yin
Fine Ti Kuan Yin is also sometimes referred to as Tieguanyin or Iron Goddess of Mercy tea. It gets its name from Guanyin, a Buddhist bodhisattva associated with compassion. This oolong tea is from eastern China and is notable for its floral, orchid-like notes. Fragrant and full of flavor, Fine Ti Kuan Yin tea is said to be China’s most famous and beloved oolong. This tea is cultivated at high altitudes in the cool mountain air of China’s Fujian province.
After being harvested, the leaves are carefully processed and rolled into tight balls. When steeped, the dark, curly leaves of Ti Kuan Yin lighten and unfurl, unleashing their flowery aroma and taste. The brewed tea has a golden yellow color and a mild, slightly sweet flavor.
