jin guan yin
Jin Guan Yin or Golden Guan Yin is produced by grafting tie kuan yin and huang jin gu oolong bushes, offering the best of both worlds and a well-balanced oolong. Here the cup is quite layered with the floral notes of wild orchid, osmanthus blossoms, and a hint of mineral with a buttery yellow liquor.

About the leaves:

Grown at 800-1200 meters above sea level, our Jin Guan Yin is hand-plucked in May from 12-year-old trees. The 7-8 cm long leaves have a one bud and 2-3 leaf composition. They are then roasted at around 65-80 degrees celsius.

Oolong Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

Lore

It is believed that tea has been growing in the Fujian area for over 1600 years. The origin place of many important production methods, Fujian is famous for oolong, wuyi yancha, lapsang souchong, and fuzhou jasmine teas. In fact, the processing techniques for three major classes of tea (oolong, white and black) were all developed here.

Fujian is particularly important in the world of oolongs which come from two major regions, Anxi in the south and the Wuyi Mountains in the north. Anxi is the origin of Tie Guan Yin, while Wuyi is responsible for Da Hong Pao and other styles. Wuyi is also famous for its Bohea black tea, and its involvement in the Boston Tea Party.
