- The appearance of Whitewater Guanyin did not originate from innate geographical factors, such as tea tree varieties, cultivation environment, or soil, which is different from the traditional Tieguanyin. But it was formed accidentally due to the lightness and fine manipulation of green tea leaves during processing. As the saying goes "You may get it by chance, but not effort."
- This tea is made of ancient traditional techniques. The key lies in the material selection and production process. The raw material is autumn tea and fresh raw leaves are picked 7 days before and after the “Cold Dew”, and the tea trees must be picked only once a year. Ensure that the leaves of the tea tree get adequate nutrition.
- In terms of the production process, when stir-frying this kind of tea, it is fried with local pine wood and rocking the green leaf by hand. In addition, the time for making tea is also very particular. They have to make tea between 5 am and 6 am the next morning.
- The origin of "Whitewater Guanyin"
Yuan Mei recorded in "Suiyuan Shidan": "Taste the world's tea, the first is the one that is grown on the top of Wuyi Mountain and the white color of the soup is brewed." Baishui Guanyin was born.
Whitewater Guanyin, the highest special grade Zhengwei Tieguanyin.
- Black sand green color zeu, and the dry tea particles are covered with a layer of hoarfrost. The dry tea makes a sound when it is placed in the cup, giving people a heavy feeling.
- The reason why Baishui Tieguanyin is called "white water", as the name suggests, is that its main feature is the tea soup, that is, the color of the tea after brewing is close to the color of "white water".
The biggest feature of "Baishui Guanyin" is "Baishui Youxiang", that is, the tea soup is light and white like water, and the aroma is pure and elegant, which is amazing.
- The leaf bottom is soft and thick, the leaf bottom is fresh, mainly dark green, and the leaves are shaped and elastic. It feels as smooth as silk or as smooth as a baby's skin.
This Tie Guan Yin tea from Anxi, Fujian appears to be of very good quality and fresh. It is a light, delightful tea with a distinct floral note. It is mildly sweet with a tiny bit of astringency to it. The loose tea leaves themselves are whole and have the wonderful, floral aroma as expected. The easiest way to brew this is to steep the tea leaves in 185°F water for 3-5 minutes. A better way is to use the gongfu-cha brewing method which basically infuses the tea for seconds and then gradually increases the time for subsequent brews for a total of 3-6 infusions.
Overall, I'm happy with this Anxi Tie Guan Yin tea. It has the nice, floral note as expected. Good quality and good price. I would recommend giving it a try. A wonderful tea to enjoy.
This is a very good green oolong. I was hoping for more of those floral notes they were talking about but basically it tastes like a really good green tea. A little bit on the mild side for my taste.
This is really good, high quality Iron Goddess. You can tell as soon as you open the bag- the color is a vibrant, deep green and it smells lush and flowery. Each steep brings out new subtleties of the oolong flavor without losing the overall impact of the taste. All in all, it's good stuff and a good deal for the price.
I love oolong tea but, this beats them all, hands down. This tea is light and fragrant with subtle floral and spice notes that transform an ordinary oolong tea into a mystical experience. I enjoy visiting the Tea House at the Chinese Gardens and enjoying teas like this one. I'm able to enjoy that same tea house experience in my own home with this tea. I love filling the little tea bag and pulling the strings to close it. It doesn't take much more time to prepare this tea than one that comes in bags already. I fill the bag with tea while waiting for my water to boil. I prefer loose tea anyway so I just enjoyed filling the bag, using it, then just tossing it out when I was finished with it. I don't have to clean wet tea leaves out of anything. So nice.
