Made in the legendary Chinese style called Tieguanyin (Ti Kuan Yin), this flowery green oolong is delightfully complex, with notes of apricot, honey, and plum, and has a subtly creamy texture.

Make sure to steep at a cooler temperature (around 175°-185° F)* to bring out all of this tea’s wonderful complexities.

Tieguanyin is named after Guanyin, the goddess of mercy. The story goes that a poor man found an old overgrown temple in the woods, and over time restored it. In gratitude, Guanyin made a tea plant grow right outside the temple. The tea was so good that it became famous and helped the man’s people come out of poverty.

* Adding an ounce of cool tap water to a 12 oz cup achieves this temperature.

Ingredients: Full leaf oolong tea from Anxi county, China
