About Tie Guan Yin

Tie Guan Yin is one of the top Chinese prestige Oolong teas. It has a unique refreshing floral aroma, silky texture and lingering after taste. It has been listed by tea analysts as the tea with the most natrual aroma.

Tie Guan Yin is one of the most popular teas consumed in China and its popularity is rapidly rising among many south-east Asian countries. It's rolled green leaves produce a pleasant scent of freshness reflecting the fresh air of high mountains.

Charcoal baked Tie Guan Yin

Charcoal baked Tie Guan Yin is the Tie Guan Tin made in the traditional old folks' way. It has following characteristics: 

  1. The tea leaves used are of premium quality and fermented with traditional fermenting technics: relatively deeper fermentation in comparison to the lighter fermented Tie Guan Yin. Forced charcoal bake of the lighter fermented Tie Guan Yin results in teas lack of aroma and flavor. 
  2. Requires high skills to control the baking process, time (5-7 hours) and temperature (60-70oC). It is generally believed it takes about 10 years of practice to master all aspects of this tea baking technic. Well controlled baking produces a rich deep tea aroma, while a burnt tea is easily produced by inadequate baking technics.  

As a result, this charcoal Tie Guan Yin has a unique fire aroma that is balanced, elegant, irresistible and long lasting as soon a the pack is opened.
