Black Tie Guan Yin is one of the rarest types of Oolong. Black Tie Guan Yin is made by roasting fresh tea leaves with specialised techniques in furnaces. The furnaces are made out of clay. The tea leaves are roasted by very old methods, using special infusion techniques, which of course is kept very secretive.

Tea leaves for cooking Black Tie Guan Yin look a little different from the classic Tie Guan Yin. When the leaves are ready to harvest, the edges are slightly reddened and they seem to roll up into a tube. The leaves are thinner and shorter than the usual Tie Guan Yin.

Two weeks prior to harvest tea farmers begin to soak wood in a special infusion. Later on, the wood and the tea are roasted together, with the wood transpiring its aroma into the tea leaves.

Black Tie Guan Yin has an amazing aroma and aftertaste all stemming from this important smoking process on the wooden blocks.

Aroma: gentle, sweet and at the same time smoky.

Infusion: light yellow on the first brew. With each brew the infusion becomes darker and thicker. The fourth or fifth brew is the peak of the tea’s flavour, becoming more tart, rich, vibrant.

Taste: soft, slightly sweet.
