For centuries, tea has been appreciated in China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan for its health benefits and the pleasure of its preparation. Today, the relaxation and satisfaction derived from brewing and drinking your own cup of oolong, green, or black tea provides the perfect respite from the demands of our busy lives.
Tieguanyin: Winter 2019 Premium
Noteworthy for its sweetness, this charcoal-baked batch is light in the “one drop of dew” style of the spring 2019 batch. It has a wispy smokiness in the aroma, and brews a remarkably consistent cup across many infusions. Tieguanyin often develops a drier finish in the later infusions, but this one stays sweet throughout.
Tieguanyin: Winter 2019 Special Acquisition
Simply dubbed â€śNumber 1 Tieguanyinâ€ť by its maker, this outstanding batch combines carefully grown zhen cong (original cultivar) leaves with masterful charcoal baking. There is more of everything in this tea: aroma, flavor, color, and infusions. It is a more powerful drinking experience than the sublime â€śone drop of dewâ€ť tieguanyin teas from the same maker. Teas of this caliber in general, and tieguanyin specifically, come along only once in a while when all the environmental conditions and human talents required to make tea sync up.
