From Tazo

Origin: China

One of the most celebrated Chinese oolong teas with a light, floral flavor.

One of the worlds most celebrated oolong teas, this semi-fermented tea is tightly wound in a typical oolong fashion with a very dense, sage green color. The russet brown color and delicate crimson edging of the leaf is due to the shaking and slight bruising that the tea undergoes during processing and is a signature appearance of a well made Ti Kwan Yin.

This was a gift from Melody over at StarbucksMelody.com. If you enjoy starbucks or coffee you should really go and read her wonderful Starbucks fan site / community / blog.

The tea came in a nice square metal tin. Inside the tin the tea was inside a plastic bag sealed with a white sticker. I appreciated the careful packing since it got shipped here and arrived in beautiful not crushed condition. This is a very enjoyable oolong. I added a bit of maple syrup when drinking it with breakfast, but it was overpowered by the maple. I have had this multiple times, and have only managed one good resteep each time, after which it gets very weak. Despite that fact using more water with the same amount of leaf on the first steep has provided me with an equally strong and flavorful first infusion.
