It’s tea within a bag, within a bag! I’m so excited to open this!
First bag opened. Second bag snipped.
Houston we have tea.
Tightly rolled balls of emerald and dark green.
No noticeable smell or at least nothing note worthy.
Tea and water into the gaiwan. I wonder if anyone does water first?
I don’t see that working as well. A very light oolong in both aroma and flavor. Orchid is the highlight for both. With slight, very slight vegetal and grass notes.
The mouth feel is silky. Like most oolongs this one re-steeps quite well.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: JK Tea Shop
Tie Guan Yin Oolong tea, also called Iron Goddness of Mercy(literally in English).
For this 2A grade Tie Guan Yin, it is light-roasted, enjoying very good light orchid fragrance. After sipping the tea liquid, you can still feel the good orchid fragrance in the whole mouth.
