Sip Spring is the taste of springtime - a bright and more refreshing modern style Tie Guan Yin due to the producer waiting a little longer before firing. This means that the leaf takes longer to lose its water content leading to more 'green' taste.
I love the nuance that can be created in Tie Guan Yin through the slight adaptation of production methods. This year we have managed to source this fresher TGY to compare with a supremely balanced Superior Iron Goddess and a more creamy and textural Golden Yolk. If you want to really understand the differences and train your tastebuds then I recommend that you pick up all three and enjoy some delicious comparative tastings.
Purchased from the original TGY village of Xiping, this small-batch tea is made in the Xiao Qing style. If you are not sure what this means then check out the video below [skip to 15mins for the explanations].
