Anxi Tie Guan Yin

Anxi Tie Guan Yin is a personal favorite tea of mine. Its smooth drinkability and lasting flavor makes this a tea that can be enjoyed anytime. 
A lot of the Tie Guan Yin you see on the market, Western and Chinese, are very similar. Bright, floral and sweet, but not much else. 

I have made numerous trips to a few of the villages in Anxi including Gande, Long Juan and Jian Duo in search of a Tie Guan Yin that is far above the rest. 
While my search isn’t done I have found a few Tie Guan Yins that break from the monotoned oolongs that flood the market. All The Tie Guan Yins offered here give you a flavor note or a taste profile that makes it stand out, something unique. I hope by tasting these teas you begin to see just how unique and awesome Tie Guan Yin can be. 


This light Tie Guan Yin is fresh and floral but has a confident sour sensation and milky body that yield to a complex and balanced juxtaposition of flavors.
