鐵觀音 (Tie Guan Yin)

Ming jie, Anxi, Fujian, China

At a high elevation of 1200m, the Mingjie staffers grow, cultivate and process this renowned tea, known for its signature floral scent.

This is a lightly oxidised tea. It is first gently bruised to allow a fast oxidisation before being rolled, baked, re-rolled and re-baked. The small cluster-like bright jade leaves once steeped, unfolds to reveal whole tea leaves with orange edges, denoting the intricate semi-oxidising process.

Dry leaves: small bright lime and green clusters
Liquor: light yellow colour
Taste: thickish viscosity with strong floral notes of frangipani and osmanthus, honey, plums
Process: withered, lightly oxidised, rolled and baked
