In the tin, this has the expected look of a tie guan yin (rolled balls of mostly green-colored tea) though it seems to have rather more silver highlights than others I’ve had recently. The tea in the tin smells green and grassy.

Gaiwan. Rinse. 195F for 15 seconds, plus 5 additional seconds for each subsequent steep.

The tea has a light, lemon-yellow liquor with a green tinge and is clear. It has a buttery, floral aroma, and a mild, buttery floral flavor.

It’s pretty much exactly what I’d expect from a tie guan yin. The only reason I’m not rating it higher is that it has a bitterness to the finish that is more pronounced than I’d like.

But I do love the way the leaves unroll and double to triple in volume!
