Aged Tie Guan Yin is simply delightful, alluring, enchanting. Starting with premium Tie Guan Yin, the leaves are stored in earthenware drums. Every 12-18 months the leaves are removed and lightly baked to remove any surface moisture that has come into the leaves. The baked leaves are returned to their drum where they continue their aging and mellow.
By the time the aging leaves reach the fifth year of aging, the leaves have developed a most silky mouth feel and mellow sensation. The repeated light baking introduces caramel type notes that complement the leaf material to no end.
The cup will be light amber tint with lively golden influence. The broth thick, viscus and smooth leading to lingering aftertaste guaranteed to bring pleasure to the most sophisticated of tea palates...
The bonus comes in the infusing resiliency . Easily steep this grand tea for ten infusions, truthfully, fifteen is not a stretch...Aged Tie Guan Yin, what an incredible discovery.
