Tieguanyin tea, or Iron Goddess of Mercy, is a famous Chinese oolong tea with a long history and intricate taste. It was named after the Buddhist goddess Guanyin and was first produced in China's Fujian province. This tea variety is now known worldwide for its exceptional flavor and aroma.
Tieguanyin comes from a specific strain of the Camellia sinensis plant, chosen for its distinctive properties. The tea is harvested by hand and undergoes a detailed process of withering, rolling, oxidizing, and roasting. This process sets Tieguanyin tea apart from other varieties, giving it a unique taste and aroma. Tea lovers will enjoy its smooth, velvety texture and heavenly fragrance, reminiscent of orchids and tropical fruits when they brew Tieguanyin. The flavor of Tieguanyin tea is intricate, combining floral, fruity, and mineral notes with a slight sweetness and lingering aftertaste. Each sip presents a new array of flavors that evolves with every infusion.
The quality of Tieguanyin tea is assessed based on the appearance, aroma, and taste of the leaves, divided into various grades. A higher grade indicates a more refined and complex tea profile. Some special Tieguanyin teas are aged to improve and smooth their flavors, resulting in a richer drink.Key words:
