Setting Method:

Use 1/3 of a bag per brew. The tea can be poured at least twice and tastes best when brewed with low mineral water. This is because of the reaction that substances in the leaf have with minerals in the water. Suitable water is for example Spa blue, Mont Calm, Mont Roucoux, reverse osmosis or water from the Zero water filter.

Prepare the tea utensils and use as hot water as possible. Drawing time is about two minutes but depends on the amount of water.

General information Tie Guan Yin

Tie Guan Yin oolong is made in the south of Fujian province. In the spring and fall, the tea plant forms new shoots, and in the case of Tie Guan Yin, it waits until the shoots have become substantial leaves. Tops and small leaves are too fragile for the making process of Tie Guan Yin.

After harvesting, the leaves are wilted and damaged in a kind of drum to start the oxidation process. The level of oxidation is determined by the tea master.

After oxidation, the tea is rolled and roasted and this is repeated a few times. After this, the tea is dried, either electrically or on charcoal. Finally, the twigs are removed from the tea. Light Tie Guan Yin is preferably kept in the freezer by the seller.
