Modern Style Tie Guan Yin is a greener, light style, clean fragrance (Qing Xiang) oolong from Anxi County. It's delectably floral with a thick, buttery body.
Modern Style Tie Guan Yin gained popularity in the 1980s, especially in Taiwan. The oolongs are referred to as light fragrance or clear fragrance and have a lighter oxidation and a lighter roast than the traditional oolongs of days past. These modern style oolongs do not have the same shelf life as more roasted and more oxidized oolongs, but they showcase the natural fresh tasting, creamy textured, fragrant oolong leaves.
