The intense and unique bouquety perfume of Tea Hong’s Tieguanyin Floral comes from bioactive substances formed naturally upon proper processing of the young leaves from the Tieguanyin cultivar. Enjoy also its velvety texture and smooth taste upon stronger brewing, when you can steal a few minutes away from the hectics of the day to focus on preparing a nice little cup (or two) for drifting away. Only first flush from young bushes is used for this level of gastronomic excellence.
Seductive aroma of sweet blossoms of creamy sensuality. Accents of honey and lilies, with accents of the woods after spring showers. Velvety texture. Light herbaceous tinkles and extremely light bites of citrus on sides of tongue. Sweet aftertaste.
While this is a popular selection for use with gongfu infusion approach, please do not steep for less than 30 seconds. 5 to 6 grams of tealeaves is ample for a 150ml gaiwan for tasting the full profile of this wonderful tea using slightly longer infusion time. Start with 45 seconds to gradually work out your own preference. Generally speaking, shorter infusion time using higher leaf to water ratio gives you better aroma, while longer infusion time with less leaves will develop more velvety texture. This particular selection is quite tolerant for bolder experiments.
