Free Tea Tastings Daily!302 6th Ave @ Clement St.
This is one of the most interesting teas we've brought back with us during our recent tea sourcing trip. This barely oxidized green oolong, from Anxi, Fujian, is made and produced with a new tea cultivar, which is a cross between Yellow Gold Huang Jin Gui, and Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess. As a result, it is a very interesting and very tasty tea! It has the buttery, osmanthus, and deep citrus aromas of Yellow Gold Huang Jin Gui, but the floral lilac bouquet and silky, grassy aftertaste will definitely remind you of Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess. This is a must try!
Origin: Fujian, Anxi
We recommend using Chinese Yixing (purple clay) or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 1/4 to 1/3 full with tea leaves, or 2 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using Yixing teapot. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
