Tea of the Week – Fujian Ti Kuan Yin

Name: Fujian Ti Kuan Yin

Type:  Oolong

Region:  Taiwan

Bought At:  Adagio.com

Price:  $29 for maestro sampler set (4 teas)

First Impressions:  Looks similar to Fujian Ali Shan, but has a slightly sweeter smell


Another Oolong this week – Fujian Ti Kuan Yin.   Similar in shape to Fujian Ali Shan, expected it to be pretty similar, but wasn’t sure.  After tasting I discovered it has a very delicate flavor and doesn’t have the sweet notes the leaves smell hinted at.  Also missing (happily) is the foul aftertaste that I found accompanied Fujian Ali Shan.  Nicely mellow with a slightly roasted finish, this was a pleasant tea to drink, but doesn’t immediately jump to the top of my list.

My Rating:
3.5 / 5
