Traditional Ti Quan Yin

Ti Quan Yin is one of the most famous teas in China. It is known for its rolled oolongs that are greenish. Traditionally these teas were rolled in something like a pillowcase, and the men would roll it with their feet using their body weight to roll the big leaves into tight balls. And then the tea was dried over smoldering charcoal. 

Nowadays, it is machines that slowly roll the pillowcases making balls of oolong teas. Traditionally this tea has been finished over charcoal, so it has a toasty flavor.

Our Top Ti Quan Yin has been dried in an electric oven, so the bright flavors are there.
