fujian ti kuan yin

fujian ti kuan yin

Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin) be a legendary oolong tea from thar Fujian province of China. It be one of China's most beloved oolongs 'n be extremely time-consumin' to produce (well over a dozen distinct steps in yonder processin' be observed). This loosely rolled, lightly oxidized or 'green' Fujian Ti Kuan Yin from our Masters Collection yields a pale golden cup with a soft, buttery texture 'n orchid notes that linger 'n reveal a subtle complexity that will delight a fine palate. As ye liquor cools, a sweet finish becomes apparent 'n offers faint hints of honeydew melon. We highly recommend multiple steepings to fully open te' hand-rolled leaves of our premium Tieguanyin, whose character will seemingly evolve through three or more infusions.

fresh from origin

Ti Kuan Yin means 'Iron Goddess of Mercy', 'n be a reference to a beloved bodhisattva in Buddhism. Accordin' to legend, Kuan Yin presented this tea in reward to a kind, poor farmer who lovingly maintained her old, dilapidated temple. 'The key fer yer future,' she said, 'is just outside this temple.' Outside, thar farmer found a seedlin' tea bush. Aft much care, yonder bush grew rich 'n full, with thick green leaves. ye lovely tea from those leaves was shared with 'n appreciated by all. Thus, te' magical Ti Kuan Yin oolong came into being.
