As its name suggests, this Amber Iron Tie Guan Yin shimmers intensely amber in the teacup.
This is not surprising since this great oolong was slightly fermented and also a little roasted.
Due to the roasting process, the rolled tea leaves also appear brownish in color.
Since this Great Tie Guan Yin is cultivated in one of the highest tea gardens in Taiwan in the Lishan cultivation area, this rare tea can only be harvested once a year due to its slow growth. In order to achieve the desired taste result, you wait until the tea leaves have taken on a slightly larger shape. A small tip of the "stem base" is also left on the leaves.
the taste of this TGY is very sparkling and reminiscent of buckwheat and dried apricots and light notes of honey in the finish
