Grown from the pollution-free Anxi Alpine Area, Tieguanyin is done by hand in a traditional way. The tea leaves are tight, neat and considerable in size, it has an emerald green color and luster, and gives off a pure, fresh fragrance. The color of the tea is rich and golden yellow like amber, and naturally gives off a strong orchid scent. The taste is strong and mellow with a lingering sweet aftertaste. Commonly known as “Goddess of Mercy Rhyme", Tieguanyin has a wonderfully long lasting and strong floral aromatic fragrance, creating a rich and creamy flavor that lingers in your mouth for ages.
