Ti Quan Yin Spring Floral is delicious and a great value. We searched through all of Anxi to find a Chinese oolong tea that captures the high floral notes and has nice body, yet isn't too expensive. Its tiny greenish balls can be re-brewed several times.

Ti Quan Yins are some of China's most famous teas. They are from Southern Fujian Province, and it was in these hills that teas were first rolled into small balls. That allowed the teas to slowly oxidize and slowly develop these great flavors. Each tea leaf goes through complex changes as it gradually dies.
Light and dark green rolled leaves.
This tea brews very light, a green-yellow color that is very clear.
The scent of this tea is of lightly toasted almonds, honey, and butter combined.
Ti Quan Yin is medium bodied and may be brewed a few times.
A lovely oolong with enduring flavors of honey, butter, and almonds.
