Tie Guan Yin

New Mexico Tea Company
s
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 180°F
  • Timer 2 Min

Tie Guan Yin is sweet and thick with a hint of orchid aftertaste. The look of this brew is a subtle yellowish-green, and the first steeping unfurls the rolled tea leaf to reveal large, juicy green leaves. This oolong holds up to a surprising number of re-steepings, rewarding the palette with various incarnations of sweet, smooth, tangy, and lively flavors.

The name Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) came from a farmer named Mr. Wei. At the temple dedicated to Guan Yin he was asked what is the name of his special tea. It must be called Ti Kuan Yin in honor of the iron statue to Guan Yin he replied. As the name was a good one, it has never been changed.
