Drunken Imperial Concubine

2018 vintage—spring harvest

Weight: 50 grams (1.76 oz)
Type: Tieguanyin Oolong
Production region: Anxi, Fujian Province, China

This rare and exclusive Tieguanyin Oolong is picked during spring from the high mountains of Anxi in Fujian Province. This tea is a traditional high-fired Tieguanyin where the leaves were charcoal-roasted for 22 hours over a 3-day period after the tea processing had been completed. This additional step brings out a bouquet of flavors, including roasted coffee, roasted coconut, burnt sugar, nectar and old agarwood. The aroma is simply intoxicating.

High-fired Tieguanyin is one of the most labor intensive oolongs, requiring precise skills and years of experience. Few young tea makers today are willing to learn this art, thus diminishing the availability of this kind of tea. The roaster of this tea is Master Chan’s long-time friend, who is in his 70’s. Bana is proud to be able to bring such exquisite and unrivaled Tieguanyin Oolong to our customers.

This tea can be steeped many times. It can also be aged and improves with time.
