1998 Autumn Aged Anxi Tieguanyin

 

This limited 1998 harvest of aged Tieguanyin is fed by sweet mountain springs and grows on the cloud-enveloped peaks of Anxi. It stands out as unique from the others because the leaves were hand-processed using traditional Oolong Revival style, where one end of leaf is slightly curled and the other is extended. The shape is as a ‘dragonfly’. These leaves were turned and fluffed three times the normal standard for modern Tieguanyin.

 

The result of this unique processing and the 20 years of age creates a mild shu pu’er-like earthy and floral flavor most similar to the clean fermentation of Xingyang shu pu’ers. It has the foresty richness of shu pu’er but the sweet , milky and caramel aftertaste of oolong.
