Quality & Package Size: 

We offer 3 quality grades (High, Premium, Exclusive) in a choice of 2 sizes (50 or 100 gm packs). Our High grade is comparable to teas nominated as top quality in some Australian stores we have sampled. Our exclusive grade is at the level above which a regular tea drinker from the region where the tea was produced would not easily distinguish further improvement in quality.

We take special precautions to purchase new season stock, air transport and store refrigerated to preserve the original tea quality.

Hello EnJie,\r\n\r\nThis is by far the BEST Tie Guan Yin I have had the pleasure of tasting. The delicacy of the nutty flavour, with NO bitterness and NO taste of chemical residue that you get from supermarket Teas.\r\n\r\nI enjie\'d every sip of this tea.\r\n\r\nLooking forward to sampling the other varieties.
