Tit Kon Yum


About Tit Kon Yum Oolong Loose Leaf Tea


This superlatively smooth tea is the Kettle Shed’s own incarnation of the classic Chinese oolong, ‘Tieguanyin’ (also known as ‘Ti Kuan Yin’, ‘TGY’, ‘Iron Goddess Oolong’ or ‘Iron Buddha’ to name just a few). Our Tit Kon Yum is a half-open, curly leaf oolong which can be enjoyed throughout the day, hot or cold, since it does not become bitter when it cools.


Taste 

A vibrant, harmonic taste with the texture of liquid silk.

Aroma 

A warm, roasted scent; distinct and unique.

Appearance

Infuses the water with a pleasant golden hue.


Brewing Instructions

  • This tea is best brewed with one tablespoon (1.5grams) per 100ml cup.
  • Steep in hot (80-90°C) water for 2- 2.5 minutes
  • Avoid using fully boiled water (100°C) for Tit Kon Yum.
  • This tea can be enjoyed hot or cold since cooling does not cause it to become bitter.
  • Intense flavour notwithstanding, sugar or honey may be added according to personal preference.
  • For a stronger cup, use more leaves but do not lengthen the brewing time.
  • The leaves can be re-used several times for additional infusions.
