Organic Ti Kuan Yin
** 2 oz makes 20 - 25 cups **
Floral-like orchid notes with a smooth and haunting finish. This excellent Ti Kuan Yin has no calories when consumed without milk or sugar.
Like all Oolongs, Ti Kuan Yin is semi-fermented, meaning it falls roughly at the mid-way point between black and green teas in terms of color, flavor, and intensity. Unlike other Oolongs, the process of making "TKY" involves a longer baking, or drying process. As well, the raw leaf used to produce the tea is grown on a sub-varietal of Camellia sinensis. In China, "TKY" is drunk with meals to help foster a feeling of satisfaction without the need to gorge oneself on the pleasures of the table. The cup is full bodied with deep almost winy notes that help fill the belly.
