Advent Day 14, High Roast Tie Guan Yin
It's the new spring 2013 version of my High Roast Tie Guan Yin (from Shiping, Anxi). A model of international cooperation, the leaves come from Fujian, but they are roasted by Master Wang in Taipei.
my Tie Guan Yin from Alishan, for instance. Or the same cultivar is done in a different way: for the first time, I tried a red Tie Guan Yin just last week! (That one wasn't very good).
High Roast Tie Guan Yin, however, follows none of these trends or fashions. It still smells and tastes pretty much like 10 years ago, when I first had some. This also makes it a perfect tea for the traditional Christmas season!
