Oolong mostly comes from China, specifically from three main areas: Fujian, Guangdong and Taiwan, each style is quite different but never stop exchanging.

Yellow Dragon Oolong tea

The English name is Yellow Dragon, there is also another name “Tou Tian Xiang” means sky high aroma. Beside its powerful fragrance, it has easy sweetness yet full body texture, a every day tea.

This tea can be plucked two times, in Spring and Fall, normally autumn tea is much better as there is enough sunshine available, most of the tea competition winner is autumn tea. Some people purchase autumn tea only for the whole year sale.

However in China its reputation is not very high in last twenty years, one is because of the competition between different varietals. In Anxi county, the number one varital is Tie Guan Yin. Between 1954-1984 teas could not purchased privately but have to sell to the country, the buyers in the Tea Station on behalf of the government mostly came from Tie Guan Yin region, the result is except Tie Guan Yin, all other varietals in Anxi county are put into one category named “Se Zhong”, so officially you have no name any more.

Another cause is kind of difficult unstandable nowadays, as Huang Jin Gui is pretty good at digestion, much better than other teas, in the past the whole country was very poor, people were lack of food, hungery is nighmare, they didn’t like a tea good at digestion.

There are two stories about Huang Jin Gui, one is about Wei Zhen, one is about Wang Dan.

In 1850 farmer Wei Zhen came across a special plant at the roadside, he brought it home and offered good care of it, when the tea was plucked and made, all neighbors were shocked by its strong fragrance. As the linquid is yellow and light, they named it as “Huang Dan”. “Huang” is yellow while “Dan” is light, still local people call it that way. In early 1900s tea merchant Lin Jin Tai got this tea sales very well in South East Asia, as precious as gold, so he changed the name into “Huang Jin Gui”, “Huang” is yellow while “Jin” is gold and “Gui” is osmanthus flower.

The mother bush of Wei Zhen story is still very healthy and about 2.6 meters high. Actually there were several tea plants living with that mother bush but removed in 2017, 80+ years old man Mr. Lin Wen Liang confirmed this with us, he is the owner of this farm but gave it to the local authority. He also confirmed there was no other story in the past.

Wang Dan story is new invented. Here is the story, in 1860 a girl married to a boy in Mei Zhuang village, she brought a tea plant to her new home, that’s a wish to have better life. After 3 years, she picked the leaves and made it, all neighbors liked the amazing aroma, so this tea was named as Huang Dan, similar prounciation with Wang Dan according to local language.

Mei Zhuang is a new village that split up from Luo Yan Village of the Wei Zhen story in 1961, the stela locates in Wang Dan story mother bush was set up in 2009. Under this mother bush, there are a lot of tea seeds available.

South Orange, north of Aurantium. This is a allusion derived from Chunqiu Warring Period (770 B.C. - 221 B.C.), King of Chu asked Yanying if Qi people born to be chief, Yanying answered: “Organge planted in the south of river is Organge but become aurantium if planted in the north, they have the same appreance but taste different, why? terrior is the reason. And Qi people didn’t steal but do it once enter Chu state, could the Chu ’s terrior make it be?”

Above Spring and Autumn period story explains why Huang Jin Gui from the origin is different from other area. Our factory and tea mountain has been here for several generations, according to the experience, the leaf here is thicker than outside, so can take four or more times “Shaking” (leaves loaded in a round rotating bamboo basket for breaking leaves’ surface and fermentation, a key step for Oolong processing), the result is thicker and full body texture, also teas from here can keep the quality for longer time.

Classic Tieguanyin oolong tea

Basically there are two kinds of Tie Guanyin (Iron Goddess or Ti Kwan Yin):

Classic Tieguanyin is a Nong Xiang tea, middle roasted, floral yet sweet and no fire smell at all.

Making a Classic Tieguanyin is not an easy job, there is a cost limit, kind of dancing in Shackles but that’s exactly where imagination and disobedience are stimulated, for a skillful producer, rules are in heart while breakable when necessary.

The first key gift is blending skill to accomplish three aims:

  1. Quality stability: there is no 100% same tea because it’s an artistic agriculture product, but the number can be over 95% through blending.
  2. Cost reduction: one plus one can be three through proper blending, similar to a great team.
  3. Feature maintance: uniqueness matters to a brand, when the features disappear the name lost too, blending can be a secret weapon to build the special characters.

The first rule for blending is respect every kind of tea, not a tea is bad, every one has its unique chactracter, all we have to do is drawing a picture of what final tea we want and keep every one in mind, then find the best combination.

The second rule for Tieguanyin blending is embracing both spring and autumn tea. Spring tea has better mouth feel while autumn tea has better aroma, through their joint efforts, either the tongue mouth or nose can get it then together for an enjoyment spirit experience.

Most of teas have its best in Spring, but Tieguanyin is one exception, a lot of tea competition champion is from autumn, in that time, sun shine is more available than spring and the cold air from the North just arrives, that increases the possibility of making good tea a lot.

No dare to save labor even making is so complicated, no dare to reduce cost even tasting is so high.

--- Ancient saying in 1706

Roasting is a dangerous job

Not to you but to tea, just like cooking, it’s easy to get food burned if not pay enough caution thus break the heart so much when throwing away. This happens too in Ripe Puer, to make Shu Puer, normally need several tons of raw material, once failed, I am not sure I can afford such lost, tons of tea.

Also roasting is an interesting job too, to decrease the danger degree, you should start from low temperature. We put there times of roasting on this Classic Tieguanyin, the secret is low temperature but long time baking, so no matter inside or outside can get warmed. The first time roasting is about 70-80 °C, it’s purpose is to remove off flavour and wake up the tea, then make the second time roasting at about 90 °C for several hours, at this stage you can get very nice smell, all you want to do is just staying in the roasting room, especially in winter, this is the heaven. Then put a short but high temperature roasting as the final to guard what we got, the last step is packing up before it’s cold.

Ⅵ. #7575 Fairie Diamond

Fairie Diamond Oolong tea

“Wuyi Rock tea like Big Red Robe is too strong for me.” I ever heard such complain, then this Fairie Diamond is the best choice, lighter yet complex. Actually they are the same varietal, Wuyi Water Fairie and this one, they both come from Shuiji Town, Jian Yang County, Fujian Province.

Zhang Ping Shui Xian is its Chinese name, “Shui Xian” is Water Fairie in english. When you move to a new region, you’ll get a new mark. This happened to tea plant too. In early 1900s, two farmers Liu Yongfa and Zheng Yuguang brought this varietal back home, regarding processing craft, in order to differ from other competitors, these two farmers creatively combined the Fujian North craft with Fujian South craft, lowering down the Wuyi Rock tea drinking curve, so even new tea drinkers can easily enjoy the complexity.

The reflection of Taiwan Bao Zhong oolong

In 1920s, a foreign buyer gave Liu Yongfa an order but asked for customized packaging that similar to Bao Zhong Oolong - square shape - but smaller quantity to 20g per bag for convenient transportation. This request aroused his interest very much, after several years’ research and experiment, Liu Yongfa finally invented the square packaging craft and equipments which shows as below:

The end is yellow gold liquor with sweet yet full body texture, along with the unique apprance, a gegorous drinking experience.

*This tea also comes with another heavier oxidization version, as well as Red Fairie in black tea.*

Be small and beautiful

To be or not to be, that's the question.

--- William Shakespeare

Life is a long running, we don’t know what will be until get there, maybe a break, a down, a luck or a thrilling, but we can see what we are dreaming of in some time and try to figure out what should be done right now. Fairie Diamond didn’t go so well in late 1900s, after the Chinese economic reform, his neighbor Tie Guanyin got very popular from 1990s, still one question he should answer is how to survive.

A lot of farmers turned the boat learning from Tie Guanyin, including the semi-ball shape, that’s not so hard as they are close in distance, also it has Anxi Tie Guanyin Gene from the beginning (Liu Yongfa combined Wuyi craft with Anxi carft to create this tea in 1900s.). The strategy of beeing Tie Guanyin alike did save them but when Tie Guanyin crashed from 2012, Fairie Diamond fell down much faster. Most of us can not smell the danger when everything goes ok until the final trial come.

Farmers started to wake up and re-examine the road that have traveled, traditional craft are picked up and armed with new technology. Still Fairie Diamond is the only square shape tea in China and living well now. History is an interesting circle that keep repeating and updating, it’s never late to know where you come from.

Ⅲ. #7176 Green Tie Guan Yin

Anxi tea farmers are full of creative spirit, green Tie Guanyin is the proof. Eyes-pleasing color, aroma, although not as full body as traditional version, it is kind of combination of green tea with traditional Tieguanyin, this creation helps it ruled Chinese market for over 20 years.

In 1991 the first Taiwan tea company was introduced in Anxi county, new technology and modern equipemnts were imported too. In the past in order to get the semi-ball shape of tea, people had to use their feet and hands, now only hands left.

Anxi farmer invented Long-spike Cuttage, this is very important for tea plants reproduction. In 1936 a big step forward Short-spike Cuttage was invented by Anxi, before in order to get a seedling, a long branch of tea plants needed, this hurt the plant a lot and not efficient, now need only 15cm branch. This technology is used in most of the world.

Compare to Traditional Tieguanyin, Green Tieguanyin is not just lightly oxidized, the real world is never that simple. Air-conditioner Using in tea making is a big leap, by controlling humidity and temperature, it’s more possible to make greener and floraler tea even in the hot summer.

Famous tea man Mr. Zhang Tianfu ever tried to make use of air-conditioner but the one who finally figured it out is a common Anxi tea farmer named Wang Yirong, Mr. Wang started the experiment in 1996 and got success in 1997, in that time air-conditioner can control temperature only not humidity, he mailed to the air-conditioner factory and convinced them to offer such equipment. Mr. Wang still lives in Gande town of Anxi county, he has a lot to talk every time we drink tea together. He is one of the people earned my respect a lot, the air-conditioner using technology he invented was offered to everyone freely, actually he paid a lot to train the farmers in whole county.

Based on Mr. Wang Yirong’s invention, more creations happened, mostly 3 types of green Tieguanyin were invented:

Only Orthodox style is ok for roasting, if you want to roast tea, be sure which style of the teas are.

There was a time when I thought of no other, And we sang our own loves refrain, And our hearts beats as one as we had our fun, But time changes everything. And when you left me my poor heart was broken, Our romance seemed all in vain, The dark clouds are gone and there's blue skies again, Yes time changes everything. The time has passed and I have forgotten you, Mother Nature does wonderful things, I guess it is true for me and for you, 'Cause time changes everything'.

--- Bob Wills, Time Changes Everything

Time changes everything but good tea left

Bob is right, Anxi tea farmers know about it, instead they make use of it to create 3 quite different flavor teas. In the processing of Tieguanyin, when the step of Basket Rolling finished, leaves will stay in the Withering Room keep oxidization.

The next morning, if the Sha Qing Kill Green step excuted before 4am or 6am (which depends ..), Orthodox style will be made while Balanced style will be made if it’s in the afternoon and Sour style will be if it’s in another day.

All three types of teas can be very good but Sour style will be a bit of awkward if cup 3 side by side.
