Roasty, rich and tannic, this 28 year old tea must have been properly stored, because there are no stale or musty notes at all. Tieguanyin is often offered in lighter, green roasts. As far as I’m concerned, those aren’t really Tieguanyin. This properly dark roasted offering gives you the Iron Goddess of Mercy as she was intended to be, with plum skin sweetness and red wine astringency. Forget the green stuff. Once you go black, you’ll never go back.
