Ti Kuan Yin Special Grade
Golden-yellow liquer full of floral, sweet, and fruity flavors. Fragrant notes of orchid, apple, berry, and grapefruit balanced by subtle sweet notes of malt and honey.
This renowned variety of Oolong, also sometimes spelled Tie Guanyin, originated in Anxi in the Fujian region of China in the 19th century. Its name comes from the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, and is loosely translated as “Iron Goddess” or “Iron Goddess of Mercy”.
