Zheng Yan Handmade Tie Luo Han 正岩手工铁罗汉

From: $21.40


Tie Luo Han is one of the four most famous Wu Yi bushes, which also includes ‘Bai Ji Guan’ ,’Shui Jin Gui’ and ‘Da Hong Pao’ and was also once reserved for the imperial families in the Tang Dynasty.

It gained its name through its bushes’ resemblance to an Arahan, hence the name ‘Tie Luo Han’ which means ‘Iron Warrior Monk’.

This tea is exceptionally pure and smooth and has a medium to strong taste. When young, ‘Tie Luo Han’ has a slightly dry taste, similar to that of char-coaled bamboo. However, as the tea ages, the roast mellows out, leaving the tea with a rich plum. As this Tie Luo Han comes from trees that are over a hundred years old, it has particularly many layers to its taste and drinkers can experience the complexity and changes to it over the brews. Often, the first few brews will give a slightly woody taste while the later brews (after about the 5th time) will slowly show floral notes.

铁罗汉和“白鸡冠”、“水金龟”、“大红袍”一样,是武夷四丛之一。唐朝时期,它也是专门进贡给帝王家族的贡茶。铁罗汉茶树因外形酷似罗汉,因而得名。

此茶口感自然醇厚,味道处于适中到强烈之间。一般情况下,最初的几泡会带有木香,可是越往后(大约第五泡之后),花香味会越发浓烈。
