Our Nutty Fragrance Ti Kuan Yin is unique in that it goes through a traditional charcoal roasting process instead of electronic roasting process. When carefully controlled, the charcoal roasting process add a special nutty taste to this tea, even though the tea itself doesn’t contain any nut or even come in contact with any nut during tea making or roasting process.
Tie Guan Yin, also known as 'Iron Goddess of Mercy', is a premium variety of Chinese Oolong Tea and is also one of China's most famous Oolong teas. Tie Guan Yin is associated with Anxi in Fujian Province China.
Tie Guan Yin is typically close to a Green Tea , with only a little oxidization. Consequently, it has a very flowery, delicate aroma without the green tea "grassiness" or astringency.
The processing of Tie Guan Yin tea is complex and requires expertise. Even if the tea leaf is of high raw quality, and is plucked at the ideal time, if it is not processed correctly its true character will not be shown. This is why the method of processing Tie Guan Yin Tea was shrouded in secrecy.
