2009 Monkey-Picked Tie Guan Yin: The Difference Is Big

While last year's Monkey-Picked Tie Guan Yin was an excellent tea, those of you who try the 2009 edition will notice a big difference. We mean that literally: the leaves are a lot bigger! We took a side-by-side photo of the old and new tea to show what we're talking about (2009 edition is on the right). Roy says this is the way a classic tie guan yin used to be in the old days; now it's hard to find top-quality tea with such large leaves. Those big leaves are packed with flavor and aroma that make this year's Monkey-Picked a real standout. Tasty and fragrant with a smoothness that invites you to drink it all day, the 2009 tea will delight even the most discriminating oolong lover. It's already the top seller in our online store for the month of October. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

I can go for those large-leaf teas. I like Puerh, which is a broad-leaf cultivar. And I like Assam, another big-leaf variety. Oolongs with big leaves are nice too. --Teaternity
