From Yunnan Sourcing

This is the highest grade of Tie Guan Yin normally available. Picked in a small window of just 2 days during the spring and autumn harvest and hand-processed in small batches to achieve a high level of aroma and full Guan Yin taste! Also known as AAA Grade!

Tieguanyin was my crossover into tea. Anytime I have it, it takes me back to that first cup. I used a duanni yixing teapot to brew this tea.
This tieguanyin is different from others I’ve tried. The body and color of the brew is light. Early aromas start off almost potatoey and it gradually turns into that lilac, super floral that I’m used to in a tieguanyin.
Sweet and soft. Even after increasing my steep times to adding more than 30 seconds, the flavor never got sharp. Great tea!

This is the fancy AAA Imperial grade from YS tea club, and its very nice.

Clear, less creamy than some ive tried, very leafy in taste. Still mega floral aroma, but somehow ‘natural’ – it reminded me of fresh nature. Not vegetal like green tea, sweet and magical. I think part of the reason I love these Anxi or Formosa oolongs is the aroma & taste is so different from standard English green teas it always floors me.

You could really taste the freshness, and the aftertaste was really nice and lingering. Also it took a few steeps to rinse the flavour into something more savoury.

Really yummy.

Was this one of the greener tin guan yin teas or one of the traditional darker ones?

Rasseru

This is one of the green ones. Totally lovely aroma I can never put my finger on what it is. Their ‘Jin Guan Yin’ is also very good.
