Our AA Grade Jin Guan Yin (金观音) is a cross between Tie Guan Yin and Huang Jing Gui! Young Huang Jin Gui tea bushes are cut and then Tie Guan Yin varietal is grafted with it. After 2 years the plant is producing this "Gold Guan Yin"!
Jin Xuan varietal tea growing at an altitude of 1500 meters is expertly hand-picked and processed in the traditional method. The tea is lightly roasted to bring out it's milk fragrance (nai xiang). Very aromatic tea with a subtle but lasting taste.
Mao Xie means literally "Hair of the Crab" and refers to the hairs on the tea leaves that break off when brewed and float on the top of your cup. Mao Xie has got a thicker and sweeter taste than its more floral counterpart Tie Guan Yin.
Spring 2014 - Fancy Grade Tie Guan Yin is made from a genuine varietal of Tie Guan Yin from Gande village in Anxi County of Fujian province. The tea is full of flavor and aroma, smooth but with a bitter-sweet aftertaste. This grade is also referred to as "Grade A" Tie Guan Yin.
Huang Jin Gui (Golden Turtle) is another varietal of Anxi Oolong tea. Lacking the slight sour-bitterness of Tie Guan Yin, it is characterized by a smooth sweet flavor with a rich slightly nutty after-taste.
