Tie Guan Yin Flowery is a lightly oxidized wulong from Anxi County in the Fujian Province of China. This is easily the most famous of the Anxi wulong tea cultivars and one of the ten most famous teas of China. It is the tea that is used in Gong Fu Cha, the Chinese Tea Ceremony. The historical and traditional style of processing this tea involved a moderate to heavy roasting; however, the modern style lacks any roasting and is a “greener”, lightly-oxidized version. This Tie Guan Yin is processed in the modern style being lightly oxidized around 15-20% and there is no roasting.
The leaves yield an aromatic, smooth, silky and viscous, light- to medium-bodied infusion with sweet, fresh, fruity, floral and honey notes.
Leaves may be infused multiple times.
