Description

Our “Ti Kuan Yin” is a beautiful example of organic greener style oolongs hailing from China's South Fujian province. The leaves beautifully unfurl, brewing up a golden liquor with subtle lilac notes and a long-lasting smooth, slightly nutty finish. The tea is named for Kuan Yin or Guan Yin - most commonly translated to "Goddess of Mercy."  Looking closely at the unfurled leaf, you'll notice its reddish-brown color and delicate crimson edging. This is due to the shaking and "bruising" done to the leaves early in processing and is a testament to its being well crafted. Being greener (less oxidized) than oolongs primarily coming from North Fujian, the focus is on being more fragrant - a trait that is delightfully manifested in the final brew of this spectacular tea.   (contains caffeine)
