Description
 
This newly refined version, our long-popular Orchid Oolong is now made using premium quality Tie Guan Yin that has been fired before being scented with Chinese "Magnolia" (Yulan orchid) blossoms. The result is a gentle yet rich and intensely floral tea with the Ti Kuan Yin varietal's unmistakable aroma and taste. The almost fruity orchid flavor becomes apricot- and peach-like as the liquor cools. A superb tea you will find hard to forget.

PREPARATION:
We suggest steeping 3-5 grams of tea per 8 oz. of water at 70-80C for 1-2 minutes. Lower water temperature and lengthen steeping time to produce more floral character; raise water temperature and shorten steeping time to produce more intensity and full flavors. As always, adjust quantity of leaves, time and temperature according to personal preference.

4 of 5 Fragrant Orchid, Almost a Sweet Fruit Smell February 16, 2021
Reviewer: Jess from New York, NY, United States  
This almost smells artificial but in a pleasant way. I have been trying subtle Taiwan oolongs so the aroma of this one surprised me. The flavor is smooth and pleasant. The shipping was fast and the small packages came with suggested brewing instructions which help a beginner like myself. This is a good tea worth trying.

5 of 5 Beautiful, fragrant and tasty! June 26, 2018
Reviewer: Loyd Blankenship from Austin, TX, USA, Earth  
This brews into a gorgeous lemony-yellow liquor with an amazing flavor. The delicate aroma reminds me a little bit of a floral Earl Gray. I used 175 degreeF water -- a 15 second wash, followed by a 3 minute steep. It holds up well to re-steeping in the 5-6 minute range, I'm on the fourth cup and it's still outstanding.

The flavor has hints of melon, with a sweet aftertaste  and a flowery finish. Recommended.
