Dark Roast Tie Guan Yin


A very heavily roasted Tie Guanyin from Muzha, the traditional home of TGY on a hill overlooking Taipei city.


Boldly roasted, the dry leaves are almost black and the broth brews up a deep chocolate-amber color. Aroma is rich like french roast and chocolate, and the broth is thick and full.

For such a potent roast, there is a good sense of balance and structure with dried fruit notes shining through in the upper frequencies. This is a comforting, throaty tea. We've held on to it for about 5 months of aging before releasing it to let the fire settle.

This tea holds the Winter Warmer championship title right now, just the kind of thing you'd want on a cold day.
