Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This new version of the more traditional Low-roasted Tieguanyin has a more intense twist, with warm fruity notes of peaches and pomegranate. Its tightly rolled leaves are darker in color and disclose a long-lasting roasted aroma, that fills the air with an intense floral fragrance. 

Tieguanyin - the Iron Goddess of Mercy - derives from the homonymous cultivar grown in Anxi, Fujian province. However, this special autumn harvest comes from Fo Shou cultivar, which adds a peculiar minerality to the natural floral fragrance that still persists in this tea. An amazing complexity is also given by the higher oxidation level that discloses a great range of aromas, releasing three different flavors in the teacup: a whirl of flowers, a juicy note of ripe fruit, and a lingering roasted aftertaste with mellow notes of dark chocolate.

Origin: Anxi, Fujian province
Flush: Autumn 2020
Format: 40 gr. Signature packs
Storage: the leaves can be stored in their original package or in ceramic vases. Avoid heat, light, and moisture.

If you want to experience the delicate and floral aroma of a lighter roasting, try also our Lightly-roasted Tieguanyin.
