Somehow this type of tea evaded me up to now despite being one of the classic rock oolongs. I tried it and I liked it, and now I do not know if it is just an excitement of discovering a new type that vibes with me or if this is actually a good tea.

Anyway. Dry leaves have an appealing aroma of time and past: dust, old books…The tea, which I prepared Western style, turned out to be limpid golden liquid, which I had not expected. The taste: a satisfying and complex roast, very mineral, tangy and a bit sweet – reminded me of barely ripe apricots, peaches and Granny Smith apples.

What I liked the most about this tea was that it was extremely invigorating and energy-giving. You want to drink it and then do stuff. Even the long mineral and tangy aftertaste was energizing. At least it energized me enough to immediately sit down and right a review, so there is that.

I am going to try it a couple of times more and if the initial impression lasts I will stock up on it to make it my get-up-and-do things tea.

I have long felt that finding good Tie Luohan is difficult. A lot of the more reputable Western-facing vendors don’t seem to offer them with regularity. I’ve noticed more of them on the market in the last two or three years though. Of the four famous bushes, it’s still the one with which I have the least familiarity. Bizarrely, I’ve tried more Shui Jin Gui and Bai Ji Guan than Tie Luohan.
