Chuantong Tieguanyin translates as traditional Tieguanyin and is a genuine, original classic Tieguanyin, produced on Mount Bijiashan, in the south west of the city of Anxi.

This tea has been produced traditionally, and contrary to modern Tieguanyin it has been wilted for a longer period, oxidised at room temperature, and the red rims of the leaves that result from the oxidation have not been removed. Then the tea has been shaped into lumps (Quan Qiu Xing) and moderately roasted.

The varietal Tieguanyin is named after Guanyin (in India: Avalokiteshvara), hence in the west this tea is sometimes also called Iron Buddha of compassion, as the name would translate.
A tea that is very intense and lingers long after being drunk, a tea for a hot summers day, lush, fruity, herbal and aromatic, warm and full.
An Xi Tie Guan Yin
This tea was produced in a relatively green manner, but sufficienty oxidised and then roasted, it can thus be kept at room temperature and even be aged.
