Tie Guan Yin Ben Shan

Thee van Sander
DESCRIPTION

Ben Shan is the cultivar from which this Tie Guan Yin is made. Normally it is the ‘Tie Guan Yin’ cultivar. Ben Shan is known for the better smell, the Tie Guan Yin cultivar for the better taste. They are both on this site so you can judge for yourself. This Tie Guan Yin is slightly oxidized and lightly toasted and has a beautiful floral aroma and flavor.

The tea is packaged per 7 grams, vacuum-packed with extra inner bag to better maintain freshness. The pouches are also stored in the freezer so you can start experiencing Tie Guan Yin to its fullest.

This Tie Guan Yin is made by the Lam family. They have a plantation in southern Fujian province in China. The plantation has an organic certificate. Traditionally I am used to Tie Guan Yin from the south, the one from the north tastes different. I myself am very happy with this Tie Guan Yin.

The tea is from the autumn harvest. Tie Guan Yin can be both very good when harvested in spring or autumn. A quote from the maker, "Tea from spring smells good, while tea from autumn tastes good". Tea plants of the Tie Guan Yin are replaced every few years because over time they grow less well and sprout less. On this plantation, this is done on a piece-by-piece basis so that the harvest can continue.

  • Sourced: China (Xiping in Anxi, in southern Fujian)
  • Growing altitude: 800 meters
  • Natural farming
  • Harvest, hand-picked (with a knife)
