Zheng Cong Tie Guan Yin 正欉鐵觀音 Spring 2014

Floral and fruity notes with hints of honey and incense

Zhen Cong Tie Guan Yin refers to the tea produced from the original Tie Guan Yin plants that were brought from China to Taiwan by tea master Zhang Nai Miao in the late 19th century. Zhen Cong can be translated to mean "original bush". Taiwan's traditional Tie Guan Yin including this one come from Muzha, a town in the mountains just outside Taipei.

Zheng Cong Tie Guan Yin has a rich flavor and deep aftertaste that lingers at the back of the throat. It also has floral, acidic fruit, honey and notes of incense. Subsequent brews have a subtle mineral finish. To taste the full range of flavors from this traditionally produced tea you can leave the second and third steepings to cool which will change the fragrance and flavor.
