Price & Size :


Quantity :  

Other names:
Tie Guan Yin Wang, King of Tie Guan Yin, Iron Guan Yin King

Taste:
Unlike normal Tie Guan Yin, this tea has an uplifting orchid aroma. Very refreshing and soothing once the orchid-fragrance fills the air. Magnificent fragrance and aftertaste. Can be infused several times.

Appearance:
Tightly curled dark jade greenish leaves. Fine liquor with emerald colour.

Origin:
Anxi, Fujian Province

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2 grams (1-2 teaspoons) tea leaves for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

This is an ok cup of TKY. Touted as TeaCuppas highest grade Tie Guan Yin, this one left me unimpressed. Lacking in body, sweetness and complexity. The lower grade takes higher marks for taste.

This tea is tasty and has a good aroma. Nice tea on a cold winter morning.
