Angel's Comment:

Baked with soft charcoal fire, the Huang Guanyin Oolong Tea combines moderate roasted flavor with high aroma, and is very suitable for tea lovers who prefer high-fragrance tea or want to try Wuyi Rock tea.

Huang Guanyin “Yellow Goddess” rock oolong tea, also known as “105” tea, is a relatively small minority when it comes to rock teas. It possess traits of both “Iron Goddess” Tie Guan Yin as well as the aroma of Golden Osmanthus oolong, giving it a very rich and long-lasting fragrance. As a result, this tea is an excellent introduction to rock oolongs.


After being lightly roasted on a charcoal fire five times over, this Huang Guanyin takes on a rich, fragrant aroma and gives a bright amber liquid, mellow and floral in taste. There is just a hint of bitterness within the first few steeps, but this quickly gives way to a sweet aftertaste that lingers in later steeps even with the dying taste of the tea.


This tea’s magic lies in its unique aroma, different every time you brew it: sometimes it takes on floral notes, sometimes it becomes sweeter like milk, and sometimes it is even reminiscent of wine. For Huang Guanyin, tasting the fragrance is just as important as tasting the liquid itself.

Tea Garden

The Lan Gang Yan tea garden sits atop high mountains blanketed in mist throughout all four seasons, at an average elevation of 1000 meters above sea level. This area has three predominant characteristics lending to its tea quality:

1. no chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used in the garden;

2. the natural aroma from surrounding pine forests give a pleasant fruity aroma to the tea leaves grown here;

3. the high elevation and perfect environment here mean older tree branches come to be covered with moss.
