This photo shows a canister of Tie Guan Yin oolong tea; I also photographed the tea loose-leaf.

This photo is deliberately out of focus. I took it on a cloudy day, where everything was looking a little blurred to my eyes anyway, and I also was unable to read the Chinese characters; the tea itself was also rather muddled. I wanted to capture these things in the photograph.

I wrote about this tea on my blog post Tie Guan Yin modern green style: everyday tea.
