Goddess of Mercy:
The natural bouquet of an oolong comes as an integral part of the taste profile, such as that of our Tieguanyin Light. Not only is this coherent “oneness” a factor we tea purists cherish for purity’s sake, but is also perhaps a freshness we all need amongst the overdose of artificiality in modern life. Our Tieguanyin differs from others by being more faithful to the traditional style — less green but more fermented. This is reflected in its relatively more neutral TCM character, a silkier texture and a softer, rounder body.

Tea Hong’s Tieguanyin Light is a fine Minnan oolong produced in the traditional way, unlike what is popular in the market. It is longer fermented, slower baked at lower temperature to render that pure tieguanyin sensation which only this traditional approach can deliver.
Warm, buttery, and floral aroma of herbaceous overtone. Accents of new growth leaves. Soft and refreshing infusion of floral sweetness of velvety texture. Light herbaceous bites on sides of tongue. Moderate aftertaste.
Contrary to popular practice, the best taste of this kind of Tieguanyin best shows itself upon longer infusion time. Adjust the tealeaves to water ratio so you can infuse the tea for at least 30 seconds at 90~95°C.
