Bamboo basket charcoal rebaked
We have matured this special batch of tieguanyin for long enough before double baking it the traditional way in a bamboo basket with charcoal ash. To attain an ideal result from this traditional practice requires proper conditioning and in-depth know how. Tieguanyin Classic is one of Tea Hong’s best value oolongs. Enjoy the warm, soothing aroma as hot water touches the leaves. Then the characteristic tastes of a classic tieguanyin delivered in a round, smooth body with a unique sweetness.

陳年 竹籮碳火 慢焙鐵觀音
Deep, woodsy sweet aroma with a sweet spice accent with tones of dates and plum. Soft, round body brightened with notes of plum and citrus peels. Biscuity undertones hinting red dates, Chinese licorice and berries. Sweet aftertaste.
The resultant taste profile of the liquor can greatly vary dependent on the duration of infusion (steeping) as much as water temperature and tealeaves to water ratio. How long the cup is rested also brings significant difference to the palate. This tea is great fun to play with for various skill practices. As always with matured tea, give it a good blanche or even two before actual infusion.
