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.

I’m not sure if I got an unusual batch, or if this tea always tastes this way… I tried the Autumn 2020 harvest. The leaves smell straight-up burnt. Some of that charring comes through in the taste; the rest is classic Anxi oolong. It’s interesting, but the burnt taste doesn’t really add to the tea in my opinion; I’d rather have a standard tie guan yin. Perhaps the batch I got was just slightly too heavily roasted.
