Origin: Fujian Province, China
Description: Legend tells us that as the young maidens plucked the first, new leaves of spring, they placed the most precious in their blouses to be preserved for the enjoyment of the Emperor and his court. Once steeped, this exceptional Ti Kwan Yin results in a lovely, bright yellow-green liquor. The aroma is wonderfully fragrant and its flavour reminiscent of orchids.
Tasting Notes: Flowery and buttery smooth on the palate, its aftertaste lingers, softly sweet and enduring.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; 90-95ºC water; steep 5 minutes and re-steep up to four times.
