2018 Spring ‘Umami’ Fujian (Tie Guan Yin) Oolong
£1.60 – £18.50
Fresh, sweet tasting every day tea that works great in a big teapot or Gong Fu!
TGY’s can be quite broad in both flavour and mouthfeel. The 2018 ‘Umami’ TGY displays some interesting characteristics! Soft mouth feel, smooth and quite savory, almost like seaweed. We brought this tea into our offerings to help our clients understand just how diverse Tie Guan Yin Oolong can be. Freshly sourced in 2018 from Fangcun Tea Market (Guangdong). Grab it while it’s fresh!
This is one of china’s most popular teas right now. Minimal processing creates this tea’s brilliantly fresh and green taste. The perfect introduction into Oolong’s!
