Tie Guan Yin is a splendid oolong tea that is always in demand because of its unique elegance. Oolong teas are among the most difficult to make well and require as much art as science. To make a great oolong tea requires not only the best and youngest whole tea leaves available, but also an artist to turn those leaves into delicious oolong tea.
The origin of this oolong tea dates to the early 18th century. Legend has it that monkeys were trained by monks to pick the choicest leaves from wild tea trees growing in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province. This monkey-picked tea was presented as tribute to Emperor Qian Long in 1741 and, for many years, was enjoyed exclusively by the Imperial Court. Presently the term "Monkey Picked" refers to the highest quality of Oolong tea available. Made from the youngest tea leaves, this tea is perfect for multiple infusions.

Oolong tea is recommended to be infused multiple times ( up to 6-7 times). 2oz of Ti Kuan Yin tea will make around 72 cups of tea with 3 infusions per serving.

After buying this tea from your site, I was apprehensive as to how this tea would taste. But to my surprise, I found the tea as a perfect blend of superior tea, I enjoyed its very taste no bitterness, no mediocrity and no dryness. It tastes like French vanilla ice cream. I have heard this tea has virtually no calories at all and is known as the champagne of the tea world.
