Ten Ren's Ti Kuan Yin 1st (Tie Guan Yin) is also known as Anxi Ti Kuan Yin. Anxi is a town in the southern part of the Fujian Province in China. Anxi is known for producing the finest Ti Kuan Yin in the world. The steeped tea has a yellow-green hue, a floral aroma with slight roasted undertones, a strong smooth flavor, and a faintly sweet and fresh aftertaste which lasts long after the sip.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about 1.5 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose Ti Kuan Yin tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times. Net tea weight 4 ounces (113 g) and shipping weight 0.28 lb.
