Fresh From Origin
Tie Guan Yin originated in the Fujian Province, China. The tea master, Zhang Nai Miao, the first generation of the Zhang family, brought the Tie Guan Yin tea strain to Taiwan to be grown in the Mucha area in the 1890s. Since then, the Tie Guan Yin strain has spread to other areas of Taiwan.
Zhang's Tie Guan Yin Tea is only made in spring and winter. Intense heat and humidity in summer and fall make tea flavors bitter and astringent. However, the condition is perfect for making Black Tea. Due to the high demand for Traditional Tie Guan Yin, Mr. Zhang began to develop the Tie Guan Yin Black Tea style based on his 50-years of Tie Guan Yin Tea experience.
