Ti Kuan Yin Oolong


This legendary loose leaf oolong tea from the Fujian province of China is known for its fresh, orchid aroma, light gold in the cup and very fine, sweet, mellow flavour. A real treasure of a tea.

Taste Notes : Iron Goddess
Oolong Tea

Brewing :  One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for this Oolong tea. So, for just-off the boil water ( 80c ), simply boil the kettle, let it sit for two to three minutes, then brew your tea, 2 - 4 mins, a little honey or sugar, with or without milk. The leaves are suitable for one re-steeping. 

Origin : China
Ingredients : China oolong tea

Details : Originating in China and primarily produced in a few Chinese provinces and Taiwan, oolong is made from tea leaves that have been partially oxidised and twisted to produce a tea that is somewhere between more robust black tea and delicate green tea. Although it looks different to black, green and white teas, oolong comes from the same plant: the leaves of Camelia sinensis.

Best I’ve tasted

This is the best Ti Kuan Yn Oolong I have tasted, it’s not too strong and has a wonderful natural sweetness. Very special teas from Tugboat.

This was my first oolong tea, but I'll be getting it again and again - it's so delicious! I've liked some green teas before, but I LOVE this (and the leaves are still really good on second steeping).
