The Five Senses and Tieguanyin Tea When drinking this tea, your five senses should be brought into play to get the most out of your tea.
1. Sight High quality Tieguanyin has heavy, tightly curled leaves of consistant color. The liquid is golden in color and the leaves, after being brewed are are thick and bright. 2. Sound During processing, Tieguanyin Tea is kneeded and then put into cloth bags which are twisted very tightly to give the tea its shape and weight. When dropped into a teapot, good leaves make a ringing sound, whereas poorer quality leaves make more of a thud. 3. Smell The dried leaves should have a sweet orchid flower aroma and the brewed tea should have a similar flavor with a hint of chestnut. This is the main difference between this and other Oolong Teas. 4. Taste The flavor of the tea should swirl around the mouth and tongue. This tea should not be gulped, but sipped and savored. Swirl the tea around your mouth with your tongue to fully enjoy the tea's delicate flavor. 5. Feel The teas leaves should feel heavy and solid.
