TenRen's Royal Ti Kuan Yin (Tie Guan Yin) is one of the best quality Ti Kuan Yin available in the world. It is grown in Anxi, a town in the WuYi Mountain Region in the Fujian Province in China. Anxi is known for producing the finest Ti Kuan Yin in the world. This semi-fermented tea is named after the Iron Goddess of Mercy.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be.
For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose Ti Kuan Yin tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times. Net tea weight 4 ounces (113 g) and shipping weight 0.49 lb. Temporarily out of stock.
