Origin

Anxi is in the southeastern part of Fujian, with a total area of almost 3000 square kilometers. The environment here is definitely suitable for planting trees in terms of temperature and rainfall. According to the records in the Anxi County Annuals, tea production in this region began during the Tang Dynasty and then grew and expanded throughout the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and flourished in the last century with a history of over one thousand years. Anxi is renowned as the capital of tea in Fujian, and in March 1995, it was named the Home of Chinese Oolong Tea by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Tea Bush

C. sinensis varietal Tieguanyin reproduces sexually and takes the form of a shrub with a medium-sized, oval-shaped leaf, deep emerald-green in color and thick but fragile, with the characteristic jagged edges. The dent of the leaf is thin, and the buds of this type grow to a purple-red color. It has earned the phrase “delicious but difficult” to describe it, as only fertile soil, qualified tea shrubs, and appropriate planting and cultivation methods can produce the highest-quality tieguanyin from this tree.

History

Tie Guan Yin is the representative of Chinese oolong tea, first developed during the early 1700s in the Fujian area of China as a cross between non-fermented green teas and fully-fermented black teas, presenting the best of both in a single tea. Oolong quickly became popular throughout all of eastern China and Taiwan, and in the early 1970s became widely popular in Japan, and from there spread to the rest of the world. Fujian, the home of oolong tea, still produces the finest.
