Description

Tieguanyin is a famous wulong from the Anxi mountains of Fujian Province of China. The green semi-ball shaped loose leaves open up over multiple infusion to a beautiful flavor profile of hyacinth and vanilla, herbaceous, dried apricot, mineral notes.  The floral notes mingled with an ozone attack and the constant undertone of mineral/river stone flavor is easy to discern and good way to 'memorize' this tea.
