Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong
This is an absolutely wonderful Ti Kwan Yin style oolong from
Fujian, China, done in the classic style. The modern trend is for Ti Kwan
Yin to be a little sweeter and a little greener. This tea definitely has
some sweetness, but that is perfectly balanced by just a tiny bit of baking
of the leaf. The aroma and steeped liquor deliver a marvelous blend of
sweet and toasty with a flavor reminiscent of roasted pine nuts.
