fujian ti kuan yin
Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin) is a legendary oolong tea from the Fujian province of China. This loosely-rolled, lightly oxidised tea yields a pale-gold cup with soft, buttery texture and orchid notes that linger to reveal the leaves' complexity. As the liquor cools, a sweet finish becomes apparent and offers faint hints of honeydew melon. We highly recommend multiple steepings to fully open the hand-rolled leaves of this premium Ti Kuan Yin, whose character will seemingly evolve through three or more infusions.

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

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.
