Traditional Ti Kuan Yin

Traditional Ti Kuan Yin
View Larger Image

This medium bodied Chinese oolong has undertones of dried fruits and a sweet golden finish.

We call it Traditional Ti Kuan Yin because of the longer oxidation which was traditionally the way the tea was created in China. More recently Chinese Ti Kuan Yin has been fashioned after the greener, less oxidized oolongs of Taiwan and unfortunately this more traditional processing is overlooked.

We like both the greener and more golden darker oxidized oolongs, each for their own unique character. One is not better than the other, just distinctly different.

Smokey Zest (Sunday, September 14, 2014)
Reviewer: Alice

Nice slightly smokey flavor that gives some zest to the tea. Good with a hearty meal.

New to Oolong, but enjoying (Monday, December 30, 2013)
Reviewer: Rachel

This is my first try with loose leaf oolong. I debated on the flavored varieties but really wanted to go 'all natural' It took me 2 cups to get used to the slight bitter side of this tea, but now I think of it more as it's earthy kick. Now I would describe it more smooth than bitter. It this perfect pick-me-up in the afternoon, but not too much that I'm still wired at 8pm.

my new fav (Tuesday, September 24, 2013)

Nice Oolong (Monday, April 15, 2013)
Reviewer: Donna

This is a medium bodied Oolong that is smooth with sweet undertones. I'm typically a fan of Oolongs with a floral flavor profile, but this was nice for a change. It was not overpowering.

Reviewer: Connie

This Oolong is the most elegant of any we carry. Its a constant among my customers, and I never loose recommending it. Has a lovely story that goes with it, and such a wonderful warming taste that is mellow and lasts forever.

Perfect (Saturday, December 10, 2011)
Reviewer: Joe

I received a sample of this with another order. This is not a green overpowering floral Tie Kuan Yin. It is a complex, sweet, fruity smooth and a bit bold tea. I love it. I ordered more today!

My Fav Oolong (Wednesday, February 24, 2010)
Reviewer: Peterjohn

Last seasons Ti Kuan Yin was great, this years is not as mellow, a little bolder, but just as great. The tea has a rich earthy body, with a texture of tastes that you dont find in any other Oolongs. One of the reasons I love Traditional Ti Kuan Yin is the subtle musky spice taste the leaf has, it can be too dominant sometimes, or very much missing. This Ti Kuan Yin is just perfect.

A delicious nutty tea. (Friday, November 28, 2008)
Reviewer: Boryana

This tea is exactly what I was looking for. It is the perfect substitute for those who drink coffee to get kickstarted in the morning -- it is strong, it has a kick, and it is earthy and slightly bitter (in a good way.) This tea is perfect for winter. I LOVE it!

Ti Kuan Yin (Wednesday, May 14, 2008)
Reviewer: Lynne

This is a very pretty tea with a delicious flavour. It has a hint of dried apricot to it that is makes it a nice 'desert tea.'

Tasty oolong hot with nice kick (Saturday, April 26, 2008)
Reviewer: Shad

Today I enjoyed several teas (perhaps a bit too many as I'm still up). The kick from this tasty oolong was a nice surprise and I can't wait to have it in the morning. Ti Kuan Yin is fruity and slightly sweet. I'm enjoying it hot and can't wait to try it cold.

Lovely Oolong (Wednesday, May 02, 2007)
Reviewer: Dea

I absolutely love this oolong just about any time of the day! It's a good "get you going in the am" tea, and a good pick-me-up in the late afternoon; yet it's also got such a soothing, mellow, slightly fruity taste that it's relaxing as well. TungTing is still my favorite oolong iced, but this is a favorite made hot.
