Scent of the Concubine 安溪 貴妃貢香鐵觀音
The tea is also known as Tieguanyin, a premium variety of Chinese oolong tea. The leaves are curly, almost ball-like, the colour is a rich jade green. Once brewed, the liquid of this premium tea has a beautiful amber colour.
Speaking of the flavor, Tieguanyin is the most naturally aromatic Chinese tea. It has a penetrating floral scent but well balanced by a slightly pleasant astringency taste, which morphs into a sweet aftertaste.
The name of this tea comes from its playfulness of tastes. The first steep you will find it a sweet floral and citrusy scent and following brews will turn to full orchid floral. Best way to enjoy this tea is inhale as you sip the tea and exhale only through your nose and let the superior fragrant linger in the nose.
This tea brings a one of kind tea experience to all your senses. This superior grade keeps its flavour well into the seventh or eighth brew making it a perfect companion of contemplation and meditation.
