Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin) is a legendary tea from the Fujian province and is one of China's most beloved oolongs. This loosely-rolled, lightly-oxidized (almost green) tea yields a pale-gold cup with soft, buttery texture and orchid notes that linger to reveal the leaves' complexity. As the liquor cools, it reveals a sweet finish of honeydew melons. We highly recommend multiple steepings to fully open the hand-rolled leaves whose character will majestically evolve over three or four infusions. Steep at 195°F for 3 minutes

      Wow!! I love it. I'm also a fan of the regular TI KUAN Yin, but this is even better - smoother, almost creamy on you palate. We'll worth the upcharge.

      Ok for an oolong although it’s quite simple, almost plain. There is a very light sweetness to it. I think it would go nicely when eating a meal.

      A really great tea. But I wish I could taste the flavor a bit more.

      This tea is so delicious I cried about it a little bit.

      Super floral and a little earthy. I usually don't like green teas, but this does a good job at riding the line between green and oolong

      Very delicate flavor - It isn't my go-to tea by far, but I still appreciate the lightness of flavor and aroma that make this into an interesting cup of tea

      Not bad! I’m not a fan of floral teas though. The taste is very good and subdued however.
