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.
