Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin) is a legendary oolong tea from the Fujian province in China. It is one of China's most beloved oolongs and is extremely time-consuming to produce (well over a dozen distinct steps in the processing are observed). Our fine version of Ti Kuan Yin produces a cup that is warm, soft and soothingly mineral in texture. Notes of toasted walnut and tender collard greens. Intriguing lingering floral aroma, lightly orchid and gentle astringency. A meditative cup.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 90°C for 2-3 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavour in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavour of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Meet our ti kuan yin farmer, Wang Mei Rui

farmer
How long have you been growing tea?
More than 30 years.
What got you started in the Tea industry?
It is a family business generation by generation. I was influenced when I was very young.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
I get up at 5-6am and prepare tools and food. I go to the mountain to pick up the tea leaves around 8-9am when the dew is almost dry. Then put the fresh tea leaves into the primary factory. The tea leaves will be under the steps of bleachery, withering, roiling and drying. After the production the teas will be stored in clean and dry bags and be sealed. Everyday I work like this for about 19 hours. Every step must be handled carefully and tenderly. Otherwise all the hard work during the day will be ruined.

ingredient

fresh from origin

Ti Kuan Yin means 'Iron Goddess of Mercy', and is a reference to a beloved bodhisattva in Buddhism. According to legend, Kuan Yin presented this tea in reward to a kind, poor farmer who lovingly maintained her old, dilapidated temple. 'The key for your future', she said, 'is just outside this temple'. Outside, the farmer found a seedling tea bush. After much care, the bush grew rich and full, with thick green leaves. The lovely tea from those leaves was shared with and appreciated by all. Thus, the magical Ti Kuan Yin oolong came into being.
