Treasure Green Charcoal Roast Tieguanyin 50%安溪 金姐炭焙鐵觀音
- sophisticated & full bodied
Tieguanyin is a popular variety of Oolong tea. The tea leaves are a tightly curled dark bold black colour. This is an exclusive tea to Treasure Green, Completely hand processed artisan collection by Tea Master Mr. Jin Je.
Treasure Green Charcoal Roast Tieguanyin is made with top premium autumn harvested Tieguayin tea. A traditional thoroughly browned Tieguanyin takes up to 24 hours of firing without interruption. This process is to ensure no moisture contact and to retain the premium quality of its smoothness and sweetness of the tea.
It can be quite hardened by the firing and needs additional time to open up for a full body. Some people would blanch the tea an additional time instead, while others would smash a few kernels and bury the debris amongst whole kernels for quicker release of flavour.
This tea is one of my favourite for the fall and winter. The warming effect, rich flavour, and complexity of taste are truly enjoyable particularly for those who also savor scotch and full bodied wines.
