Ti Kwan Yin
Perfectly Brewed In
In the Cup
Sweet and floral with notes of toasted chestnuts and dried apricots.
Legend has it that a goddess gifted this tea to a poor farmer for repairing her temple containing an iron statue. In her honor the farmer named the tea Ti Kwan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy).
Ti Kwan Yin generally falls into two categories based on the level of roasting —named after the region each type originates from. Anxi Tieguanyin is reminiscent of Green tea with less oxidation and, therefore, a fresh, floral aroma and delicate flavor. The Anxi variety is what we are currently sourcing for our specialty tea program. Muzha Tieguanyin, on the other hand, is roasted and boasts a stronger, nuttier flavor and reddish-brown color.
