Our true Anxi Iron Goddess is made with modern Light Qing Xiang style which tends to have a more flowery and rich aroma compared with the thicker texture of traditional tea. The more modern light Tie Guan Yin (Qing Xiang 清香型) borrows the Taiwanese approach of cold room withering and lower oxidation. Its sweet and floral aftertaste lingers even with a small sip.

About

Anxi Tieguanyin | 安溪鐵觀音

300 years ago, a farmer named Wei Yin was walking pass a temple of Guan Yin, a Goddess of compassion and mercy, and saw that the temple was falling apart and needed some love and attention. So the farmer cleaned the temple and renovated it, and as a gift, Guan Yin came into his dream and instructed him on where he could find a very special tea plant. Around 1700s, Emperor Qian Long was a very prominent historical figure in Chinese history, and he was a great lover of teas. He fell in love with Tieguanyin and brought this tea into prominence.

Our true Anxi Iron Goddess is made with modern Light Qing Xiang style which tends to have a more flowery and rich aroma compared with the thicker texture of traditional tea. Traditional Tie Guan Yin (Chuan Tong 傳統) is oxidised more and at room temperature, whereas the more modern light Tie Guan Yin (Qing Xiang 清香) borrows the Taiwanese approach of cold room withering and lower oxidation. Its sweet and floral aftertaste lingers even with a small sip.

300年前,一個叫魏蔭的農民路過了一座觀音廟,他看到觀音廟已經破敗不堪。於是,這位農民打掃了廟宇並將它修補了。其後,觀音進入了他的夢中,告訴他在哪裡可以找到一種非常特殊的茶樹以作為回報他的禮物。在17世紀左右,有人將鐵觀音茶進貢給當時的非常喜歡喝茶的乾隆皇帝,乾隆十分喜歡鐵觀音,並將這種茶帶入了人們的視野。

我們的鐵觀音是純正的安溪鐵觀音,以現代的清香風格製作。相比起質地厚重傳統鐵觀音清香鐵觀音具有更特出的花香和豐富的香氣。傳統型鐵觀音在室溫下氧化較多,而清香型鐵觀音則借鑒了臺灣的冷室萎凋和低氧化度的做法。即使喝一小口,它的甜味和花香亦會在你的口腔内持續停留。
