Gold Kuan Yin
Gold Kuan Yin is grown from a hybrid of the renowned Ti Kuan Yin cultivar. Like Ti Kuan Yin, it is grown in Anxi, in the Fujian region of China, and has similarly rolled leaves. Its aroma has notes of lavender and honeysuckle. It is exceptionally smooth and sweet, with a soft mouth feel, notes of melon, citrus, and honey with a lightly floral and herbaceous finish.
