Description

Our Zheng Wei Tie Guan Yin (TGY) was plucked in the day before “寒露 (cold dew)”- one of the traditional Chinese Twenty-four Solar Terms . The dry leaves of this tea appear less tender than spring green tea, while it has a richer and long-lasting flower flavor. Compared to PureTea's Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea, Zheng Wei TGY has pronounced hint of flower scent rather than greenish flavor. It yields bright yellowish broth with prominent milk and flower scent and tastes refreshing, sweet. This economical tea allows for up to 6 infusions or more.

(Tips: The tea harvested during the period three days before and four days after寒露 (cold dew) day is called “正秋茶” (means autumn tea, this term differs from “早秋茶”,the early autumn tea).

Zheng Wei Tie Guan Yin oolong tea has classic flower fragrance, without grassy notes, so it is suitable for those who are in fond of flower flavor.
