Roasted Bitter Melon Tie Guan Yin
2014 Harvest from Anxi, China
Tie Guan Yin Varietal
A quite unique and tasty oolong tea from the hills of Anxi, in southeastern China. A heavy roasting in the bitter melon brings out added complexity to this dark oolong tea.
Tasting Notes: Sweet brown sugar aroma that yields a golden crisp amber cup with strong notes of molasses and roasted chestnuts.
We like to break off a few pieces of the melon to add to the brew for some added complexity. See photo of our gaiwan test brew.
Whole melon range from 40 to 80g.
$4.00 – $12.00
