Orchid Tieguanyin is a premium grade light Tieguanyin tea from a small family farm in Anxi, Fujian, the birthplace of the 'Iron Goddess of Mercy' tea. It is a classic example of a ‘modern’ light Tieguanyin, with green leaves that yield a yellow-green liquor. We love how bright and fresh it is, with a beautiful aroma of orchids and vegetal flavour reminiscent of winter melon and melon seeds.

Tieguanyin is harvested in spring and autumn every year. This one is from spring this year. The leaves undergo a highly complex processing method and are rolled into a semi-ball shape, which unfurl quite quickly. The orchid aroma is naturally inherent in the leaf of this particular cultivar. (It doesn’t come from a floral infusion process, like Jasmine tea does.)

With a strong flavour and long lasting aftertaste, this tea is great as a palate-cleanser after meals. An exceptional tea for those who prize freshness and natural floral aromas.

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
6g | per 100ml | 95°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 5 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
3g | per 100ml | 95°C | 3 mins
+ 1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

Cold brew
10g | 1L | Room temp/ refrigerated | 6 hours

You can rinse the tea with hot water and throw out the first infusion to help extract the flavour quicker.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
