This is the first tie guan yin I’m trying. Used a gaiwan.

I was very excited to taste the baked goods quality to this tea. It tasted like a spice cookie to me early on, although I can see how that may be vanilla or apricot instead. I by no means have a refined Oolong palate.

Later on it gets a more vegetal taste and some astringency. Pretty good especially for something I can buy in bulk at a grocery store! Part of me wonders if ordering directly from Rishi would be more fresh. Not that freshness was a problem.
