Angel's Comment:

Zheng Wei Tie Guan Yin oolong tea has classic floral fragrance, so it is suitable for those who are in fond of flower flavor.

Our Zheng Wei Tie Guan Yin was plucked the day before cold dew, one of the twenty-four traditional Chinese solar terms. Though the dry leaves of this tea look less tender than spring tea, they have a richer, longer-lasting floral flavor. Compared to our more standard Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea, Zheng Wei has a more pronounced floral touch rather than a grassy note, and yields a bright yellowish broth with a prominent refreshing milky taste. This tea withstands up to 6 infusions or more.

(Tips: Tea harvested during the period of three days before to four days after Cold Dew is called autumn tea.)

Origin

Anxi lies in the southeast of Fujian at a total area of almost 3000 square kilometers. The environment here is perfectly suitable for planting tea trees, with an average temperature between 16 and 20C and average precipitation about 1700mm per year. According to the records in the Anxi County Annuals, tea production here began during the Tang Dynasty, expanded through the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and truly flourished during the last century, resulting in a history of over a thousand years. In March 1995, Anxi was named the Home of Chinese Oolong Tea by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Tea Bush

C. sinensis varietal Tieguanyin is a shrub with a medium-sized oval leaf, and spreads through sexual propagation. The leaf is deep emerald-green in color and is thick yet fragile, with beautiful purple-red buds. It has earned the moniker “delicious but difficult to grow” since only fertile soil, qualified tea shrubs, and appropriate planting and cultivation methods are able to produce the highest quality and yield of tie guan yin.

History

Tie Guan Yin is the representative Chinese oolong. Oolong was first developed during the early 1700s in the Fujian area as a cross between non-fermented green and white teas with fully-fermented black teas, combining the best of both. Oolong tea quickly gained popularity throughout eastern China and Taiwan, and in the early 1970s it gained traction in Japan as well, and from there spread to the rest of the world. Fujian, the home of oolong tea, still produces the finest.
