The pressing process and aging environment have a strong influence on flavor development in pu-erh tea - why not Tieguanyin? Hand-rolled and moderately baked by charcoal. The tea has been charcoal-fired in small batches to produce the deep green color and rich flavor that has made this tea special. The aroma of the dry leaf is deliciously sweet while the mellow honey infusion is soft, smooth and fruity. It tastes a bit sweeter and smoother than regular fresh Tie Guan Yin, and the taste stays long afterward. It is definitely for someone who prefers more roasted charcoal oolong tea.
To Enjoy: Place 5 grams per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before it boils, when you hear the water rumbling. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.
