Made by the traditional processing method, our Organic Tie Guan Yin is mainly characterized by the heavy tossing procedure (搖青; pinyin: yáo qīng) and moderate temperature of pan-fired (炒青; pinyin: chǎo qīng). These unique steps made Oolong tea more likely to form “green leaves edged with red edge”. On the other hand, the step of wrapping-twisting makes the dry tea form into funicular shape.

Traditional Tie Guan Yin belongs to semi-fermented Oolong tea, compared with Zheng Chao Tie Guan Yin (正炒: Zheng Wei Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea) or Xiao Qiang Tie Guan Yin (消青: Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea), it has a higher degree of fermentation.

The dry tea presents a dark appearance with partial distinctive reddish-brown color, while the taste of floral aroma and refreshing flavor is a little weaker than Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea. However, it’s mellow, soft and long lasting lingering taste will make you craving for more. We highly recommend it to those tea lovers who drink tea for health benefits.
