TeaVivre's Tie Guan Yin Oolong tea comes from Daishan Village, near Zhangzhou City in Fujian. This area is high in the forested mountains of Fujian, only grown between 1500 and 2000 ft elevation (500-700m) to ensure only the highest quality leaves are used in production.
Tie Guan Yin tea is the highest quality form of Chinese Oolong tea. Oolong teas were first developed during the early 1700's in the Fujian area of China. As a cross between non fermented green and white teas, and the fully fermented black teas, that combines the best of both in a single tea, Oolong teas quickly became popular all through eastern China and Taiwan. In the early 1970's Oolong Tea became widely popular in Japan, and from their spread to the rest of the world. Fujian, the home of Oolong tea's, still produces the finest Oolong teas.

Delicious! A ittle creaminess but the smokiness and roasted flavor is forefront. The tea is a bit sweeter than I had expected having it compared in the description to a coffee like flavor but I rather like it. It is robust. this is a tea that keeps on giving. Even with my long five minute steep the first time around I can continue to keep on steepin! Following steeps have some interesting notes highlighted that bring about the thoughts of a green tea, such as green bean for example, but more like veggies that are fire roasted! So good! I love having this Iron Goddess with some milk chocolate, it really taste like s’mores between the creamy note in the tea and the smokiness with the toasty note, and of course the chocolate!
It is just a regular roasted tea. Not so aromatic beccause roasted but it has after unique taste.
