The tea leaves are tightly rolled and have an elegant herbal aroma, unfurling beautifully when brewed. The pale yellow brew is tinged with green and offers a gentle taste that is both refreshing and fragrant, with subtle hints of olive and herb.
Best Tie Guan Yin tasting
When it comes to savouring Tie Guan Yin, it is best enjoyed straight, without any added milk or sugar, to fully appreciate its unique taste. However, pairing it with certain foods can complement its flavour profile, such as avocado based dishes, grilled food, and cheeses like Buche de Chevre, Manchego, and Gorgonzola Dolce. The same applies to sweet food, so try matching it with cheesecakes, white chocolate, mango and peaches to bring out the floral notes in this tea, making it an even more enjoyable experience.

Keep the tea stored in its steel box, in a cool dark place. It is important, when storing, to keep it away from sources of heat. If storing in the refrigerator or freezer, pack in small, completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for it to reach room temperature in order to prevent any condensation.
