Oolong Tea - Tie Guan Yin

Regular price $28.00

100g/3.5oz: approx. 75 x 240ml/8oz-cup

Tie Guan Yin is a premium type of Chinese oolong tea associated with Anxi, Fujian province.

It has a penetrating floral scent but well balanced by a slightly bitter taste which turns into a sweet aftertaste. It keeps its flavor well into the seventh or eighth brew, making it a perfect companion of contemplation and meditation.

Medium Caffeine

Picked in Autumn 2016 



Relieve stress


The L-theanine found in this tea reduces neural stress responses and promotes relaxation.



Refresh the mind


It contains much less caffeine so it can keep the mind sharp without having the crash that comes after drinking high caffeine drinks.



Boost immunity


The catechins in this tea protect cells against viruses and radicals, hence boosting your immunity.

  • Authentic origin - Anxi, Fujian, China

    Oolong tea leaves love moisture, high altitude and slightly acidic soil. This highland area with moderate rainfall, red and yellow soil, is perfect for growing.


  • Aroma

    Subtly sweet, leafy, and fruity - it'll calm you down like sitting in the quiet room after mediation.


  • Loose leaves

    Fresh with minimum post-processing, natural elements and flavours are perserved.

    • Many, many re-steeping times

      Can steep for about 5-7 times for the same amount, much more than all other loose leave tea brands (also, vs 1-2 times for tea bags).


    • Completely whole leaf teas

      Skillfully harvested leaves aren't broken during production. Whole leaves allow water to flow through, enhancing flavors and aromas.


    • No nasties

      Nothing is added - No added colours. No artificial flavours. No preservatives. No additives.


    • More nutritious

      Older tea trees in China naturally retain vitamins and minerals during growth cycles, yielding high-quality and nutrient-rich teas.

Different from tea bag

I have tried different oolong tea in tea bags but none of them can be compared with this loose tea. I like the floral sweet taste of this tea

Relaxing tea

Sometimes I don't know how to describe the feel when I drink this tea. Magically I feel relaxed when I drink it and the taste is really good. Highly recommended to my friends.
