Over 100 years ago, Tieguanyin was introduced to Taiwan from Anxi, Fujian. Since then, Taiwan has started to produce Tieguanyin, while the products from Muzha, Taipei and Shimenxiang, Taipei County are especially famous. This kind of heavy semi-fermented tea has rubbing and baking processes, which turns the leaves into black particles.
When boiled water is added, it becomes red amber and dark yellow. Meanwhile, it creates a strong fragrance like ripe mandarin. It leaves an elegant and graceful scent in your mouth, as well as a honey-like sweetness in your throat. In addition, it also contains a light fruity scent. Boiled water at nearly 100 degrees is optimal.
