Ti Kuan Yin Oolong
Tasting Notes: Truly a fantastic tea. Very clean sweet and floral, with honey notes. This tea gets better with each steeping.
(China, Oolong) This most prized of semi-fermented teas is golden yellow, naturally sweet, complex and dry. Sometimes called "Monkey Picked" because legend has it that it originally grew wild on mountain cliffs and could only be harvested by trained monkeys. Of course, today it is cultivated in its native Fujian Province and is a sought by wealthy Chinese. Numerous grades and prices exist and the sky is the limit for some Ti Kuan Yin prices. Ours is a fine value and an excellent example.
