Anxi High Mountain Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea#1447
Anxi is the origin of Chinese Tieguanyin oolong tea and is one of the largest green tea-producing areas, known as the Chinese tea capital.
This fragrant high mountain oolong tea is made by allowing fresh leaves to mature to a semi-fermented stage before they are dried, which produces the best green and black tea flavors. It retains its rich flavor even up to 7 brews. This oolong brews a bright yellow to amber-colored soup rich in a wide variety of polyphenolic, theaflavin, and thearubigin compounds that are very beneficial to our body. The initial smooth flavor suggests roasted nuts and it has a strong lasting, sweet and roasted tang.
