King of Tie Guan Yin - Autumn

The top grade of the famous Iron Goddess of Mercy. The lightly oxidized, tightly rolled, succulent leaves are plucked from bushes of a maximum age of only 7 years. Especially costly to make, the skills of the tea maker are put to the test in each processing step. From precise withering to multiple ball rollings and shapings to the final dry, each stage is carefully controlled to produce one of the most amazing teas created. This tea, from the Autumnal plucking season, offers an exceptional, fresh, green aroma and multi-layered complexity. Each infusion reveals subtle differences ranging from sappy and smooth to floral and sweet.
