AnXi Oolong -Tian Hua

Toasty aroma, spicy floral notes.

A traditional style Tieguanyin oolong – medium oxidized made with large rolled leaves that will open to offer tasty, almost spicy flavors. More commonly known as "Iron Goddess", this oolong offers a heady aroma. It is grown in the oolong-famous AnXi area of Fujian Province.

Lot Notes. The leaves are large and rolled with shades of green and deep brown tones - the result of the oxidization process. Offers all the notes and flavors we look for in a traditional style Tieguanyin. Lot was harvested in April 2021.

Tea Facts. This oolong is harvested about 4-6 weeks after the first greens and white teas of spring have been plucked. It is grown in the coastal mountains near Xiamen. The tea's nuanced tastes are created in a multi-step, hours-long, process of oxidizing and rolling the leaves. It is made in the traditional, medium-oxidized style favored in China.

Tasting Notes. Offers a full-mouth flavor that is spicy with stone fruit notes. Steeped, the leaves open to deep green colors and its flavors will fully open by the 2nd steep providing a wonderful floral aroma with a lingering aftertaste. The liquor is rich & light-yellow. 

Brewing Suggestions. Use 3-4 grams per 8 ounces of water. Water temp is best if boiling. Rinse the leaves briefly to awaken them, pour this water off and re-infuse. Steep for 2-3 minutes and taste. This tea will steep multiple times.

    A rich delicious tea. I mix it in with Yunnan for extra flavor. It can also be served on its own either brewed stronger for the morning or lighter for the afternoon.

    Standard restaurant quality tea

    This tea has tobacco smell, and grassy taste. It reminds me of tea i drink in chinese restaurants. Nothing special but clean taste. I rinsed the leaves in hot water for 5 to 10 seconds. The first steep of 1.5 minutes was pretty bland tasting. The 2nd steep of 2 minutes tasted a lot better than the first.

    Great tea for that bit of extra flavor that I want (and need) at times. Slight smoke flavor that lingers nicely. Several seeps still produce the desired taste. One of my favorite Oolong teas.

    A fine tea, pleasant, and offering several tastes

    Posted by David MacDonald on 5th Jul 2017

    This is clearly an excellent tea, and it can be brewed in several ways. With water about 195 and a short steep, much of the green tea character comes out, while a full boil and a longer steep produces a brown color and more robust flavor. The rolled leaves open in pot and produce a nice fragrance.
