muzha tie guan yin
A traditional Taiwanese oolong, Muzha Tie Guan Yin is a highly roasted leaf with a tightly rolled style. Its liquor is exquisitely aromatic with hints of honey, blossoms and a touch of mineral. Smooth yet complex, it even gives off a flicker of spice.

An offshoot of traditional Tie Guan Yin, Muzha Tie Guan Yin was developed during the 1920s in Taiwan. Notable for its oxidized and highly roasted character, Muzha Tie Guan Yin distinguishes itself from its much greener counterparts with its stronger flavor profile, making it a classic in its own right.

While Tie Guan Yin is produced in both China and Taiwan, their styles differ greatly. Despite both being rolled into their ball-like style shape to begin, Anxi Tie Guan Yins are greener in appearance as they are typically only lightly roasted if roasted at all. These end up with characteristics that are much fresher, floral and buttery in taste. Taiwanese oolongs, on the other hand, particularly Muzha Ti Guan Yin, have higher oxidation levels and are roaster for longer amounts of time. The result is a more complex flavor profile that sets it apart.
