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