Description: The so-called Tieguanyin tea is oolong tea made from the Tieguanyin variety tea tree, and there is also a saying that the name "Tieguanyin" is given by the Qianlong emperor. Harvested from the lush tea gardens of China's Fujian province, this extraordinary tea captivates the senses with its intricate flavor profile, enchanting fragrance, and artistry behind its production.

Intricate Flavor Profile: Tie Guan Yin is known for its complex and layered taste, offering a harmonious blend of floral, fruity, and roasted notes. With each sip, you'll encounter a delicate balance of orchid-like floral tones, a subtle sweetness reminiscent of ripe fruits, buttery bread, and a gently roasted undertone that adds depth and complexity. The interplay of these flavors creates a tea experience that is both captivating and rewarding.

Artisanal Craftsmanship: Tie Guan Yin is meticulously handcrafted by skilled tea artisans who follow traditional techniques passed down through generations. The leaves are carefully plucked, withered, and skillfully oxidized to achieve the desired flavor and aroma. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail ensures that each cup of Tie Guan Yin is a testament to the tea master's skill and dedication.

How should I store my tea?

Our packaging is suitable to storing tea for extended periods of time so long as you reseal the packaging as airtight as you can, keep it in a room temperature and reasonably dry place away from light. If you do plan to transfer the tea to a different container, keep it mind that not only should it be airtight, but also keep out light. Thus avoid any glass or plastic that is transparent.

How long does tea stay fresh?

The tea that teawaves offers will stay fresh for up to eighteen months with the exception of the white tea whose flavor will enhance with age.

Where does your tea come from?

All of our tea comes from five tea gardens primarily in Fujian, China where our co-founder Joey is from and has familial ties and we can trust the tea growers and tea makers.

How does caffeine content vary between types of tea?

All tea that comes from the tea plant does have caffeine
that affects people’s bodies in different ways. No matter the tea, though, one
of the most important things we can stress is that the caffeine in tea is
different from the caffeine in coffee! With that being said, as a general
rule—caffeine is more potent in more oxidized teas (black tea), less potent in non-oxidized or hardly oxidized teas (green tea, white tea) and falls in the
middle with partially oxidized tea (oolong tea).
