Qing Xiang Tieguanyin

Bright and refreshing, the lightly-oxidised style of Tieguanyin has become something of a fad in the recent years, but once one develops a craving for that particular taste, it’s easy to understand why: The bright green leaves pop open to unleash a tongue-tingling acidity of cherry, tempered by an almost oily body of butter, and the sweet fragrance of orange flowers—characteristically bolder than the superior grade sourced from the same farmer. For those who seek out the quenching sourness this tea has to offer, we recommend brewing a larger amount for a longer brewing time, and pairing it with a serving of buttery biscuits.
