  • $9.00

Tie Guan Yin is produced by implementing the heavy tossing procedure and pan-frying at moderate temperatures. This unique technique makes Oolong tea form its signature green leaves with red edges.

Compared to other Chinese teas, the making process of Tie Guan Yin is the most complicated one, and the heavy tossing (yaoqing) is considered to be the most critical step. It is the key stage to form the Guan Yin Yun (观音韵) and the distinctive floral fragrance of Tie Guan Yin that makes it unique.

Traditional Tie Guan Yin has a higher degree of fermentation than most other oolong teas. Its mellow, soft and long-lasting lingering taste will make you crave for more.
