Monk's Tieguanyin Baozhong 

This is a traditionally produced Baozhong using the Tieguanyin** cultivar grow by Monks and Nuns in the mountains of Pinglin just outside of Taipei. And it is wonderfully strange. The golden sweet/sour fruit notes of the Tieguanyin cultivar is on show in the upfront taste, before it moves to a thick buttery mouthfeel in the mid mouth before ending in a sweet, almost-floral-but-not-quite vegetal lingering aftertaste. It is a fascinating clash of worlds, and an another example of why we love Taiwanese teas so much!

**Tieguanyin is both a cultivar and a style of producing tea which can make it a little complicated. In this case, it is just the name of the cultivar, not the production style, of this tea.
