From Yunnan Sourcing

Tie Guan Yin from Gan De village in Anxi county was carefully picked and then roasted by hand over pine wood charcoal. The process is repeated many times until the tea has been heavily roasted and becomes almost black in color. The result is a highly aromatic tea that can be infused more than 10 times without losing much flavor. The tea soup is a bright red color and the taste is sweet and full with kind of chocolatey after-finish.

Limited supplies of this rare hand-processed tea!

At two years of age, this tea lost most of its sharp roastiness. Instead, it seems to have allowed the floral qualities to come to the fore. Other than that, there is not a huge change in the profile since a year ago. The tea is quite body warming and induces an incredibly strong throat-cooling sensation. The chocolate notes seemed mostly gone too initially, but they appeared in the aftertaste, which is quite sweet and expansive.
