TGY stands for this tea’s Chinese name, “Tie Guan Yin.” Dark greenish-brown colored leaves are clumped and dried in classic Oolong manner. Light toasting gives TGY it’s characteristic nutty flavor end of the Oolong spectrum. This Tie Guan Yin Oolong is known for jump starting your metabolism and 1 tsp per 8-10 oz of water can be steeped and re-steeped 3 times (or to your liking.) We think the 2nd steeping is the best!
