Tieguanyin tea
is a variety of Chinese oolong tea grown in Anxi, Fujian Province, China. It was named after the Buddhist deity Guan Yin. Some translate it as "Iron Goddess of Mercy". It is very expensive. For 1 kg of this tea you have to pay $1,700...One of reasons why Tieguanyin tea is so expensive is the "gung fu" style, which means "great skill". The tea can be brewed with multiple infusion...three or four times...each time becoming more tastier. The tea should be brewed with fresh water at 85°c using smaller intervals of time when steeping rather than smaller amounts of tea. Tieguanyin tea has a fragrant orchid-like aroma when steeped, the tea may be very floral or very fruity too.
