No. 171 - Charcoal-Baked Anxi Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea

Quick Overview

The processing of this baked Tie Guan Yin tea (TGY) is complex and requires expertise when compared with the regular fresh-scent (lightly baked) TGY. The fresh-scent type needs to be roasted slowly over charcoal fire (100℃) for about 3 hours to produce the baked type. By this way the resulting TGY liquor is clear, golden yellow with some light red hues. A hint of flowers sweetness and baked notes can be detectable in the first brewing which creates a smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel. The following brewing is very clear and the baked notes become more distinct. The 3rd brewing tends to be more floral with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Even after 5 brewing this tea still can create a spectrum of pleasant flavors in your oral cavity, without being overwhelming or bitter.

Tie Guan Yin is the highest quality form of Oolong Chinese tea. Oolong teas were first developed during the early 1700's in the Anxi, Fujian area of China. As a cross between non fermented green and white teas, and the fully fermented black teas, that combines the best of both in a single tea, Oolong teas quickly became popular all through eastern China and Taiwan. In the early 1970's Oolong Tea became widely popular in Japan, and from their spread to the rest of the world. Anxi, the home of Oolong teas, still produces the finest Oolong teas.

About Farmers

Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for thirty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory in 1966. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers.

He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard.

If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.

Therefore, the first priority is to strictly control product quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea leaves and regularly increase the number of tea factory which provides the healthy and natural tea beverage for the public.
