The majestic Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin). Anxi County in Fujian Province is home to this famous Chinese Oolong.
Our tea is handpicked by Farmer Luwei from his garden in Quanzhou. The garden is approximately 1000 metres above sea level and the leaf is harvested in Spring.
Iron Goddess is our go-to light Oolong. To produce Oolongs, fresh leaves are roasted and then oxidised. Darker Oolongs are often oxidised to 70% but to tease out the delicate and light floral notes of Tie Guanyin, this tea is finished to 30%.
Light, pure with the soft aroma of orchids. The tightly curled balls will unfurl into huge fresh leaves. Delicious hot or cold, Tie Guanyin will provide multiple infusions.
