Description

Fujian is the biggest tea-producing in China but also the province that makes the widest variety of teas.Tea is grown in all of the province but three areas are particularly well-known: the surroundings of thecity of Fuding, for the best white, green and jasmine teas; the Wu Yi mountains and their legendarysmoked teas, and the Anxi district, which makes the best Tie Guan Yin. Anxi’s Tie Guan Yin is lightly oxidised at around 10%, achieved by gently mixing the leaves for around an hour during the sweating stage. The final roasting is brief, and serves only to dry the leaves.

This attractive oolong with vegetal, floral, marine and mineral notes has a buttery vanilla flavour giving it a round body and good finish.
