This is a traditional Ti Kuan Yin (also called Tie Guan Yin, or TGY) under the auspices of Sea Dyke brand. TGY is named after the Goddess of Mercy. Legend has it that the Goddess of Mercy appeared in a dream instructing a religious farmer to harvest a tea tree behind a temple, and this tea was named TGY and became a much loved tea today.
This tea was manufactured in 2010. It has a printed expiry date of 2013 meaning this tea was produced in 2010. Tea drinkers here now sought these ‘expired’ tea as the tea would have aged and mellowed to a very aromatic and smooth oolong. Nice nutty and sweet aftertaste.
This oolong is sold in its original, factory packed tin and encased in a factory sealed box.
