Maple Charcoal Guan Yin
March 2020 Roasting during Maple Sap Boil
Tea: Autumn Harvest Tie Guan Yin
Charcoal: mix of maple and ash
Partially steamed over maple sap
A truly unique tea! Roasted over hardwood coals during our 2020 maple sap boil (the syrup is really good too, but not for sale!), we carefully crafted this tea with our custom process during the later stages of the sap boil.
This enabled us to alternate roasting and steaming over the boiling sap! Oh, the wonderful aromas…it’s the closest we can get (at the moment) to being in a tea factory.
This tea is medium roasted, hence a golden amber infusion, sweet toasty notes of maple (not surprising!), hazelnut, and vanilla.
Update: Aging in the teahouse over a year has mellowed the toasted notes, as well as given a more pronounced sweet maple finish.
$5.00 – $160.00
