Traditional-style of Anxi oolong. The roast brings a nutty, vanilla aroma. The body is soft, yet full with a toasted, creamy, floral character. Steep longer to bring out brisk citrus. A great value and a “must have” tea!

Harvested and produced on May 1, 2023 and roasted on August 1, 2023 by our friend Mr. Lin Rui Fu in Anxi County, Fujian Province. It’s a one bud, 3-4 leaf pick from the Tieguanyin cultivar growing at 2,600 feet.

Iron Goddess of Mercy” is the English translation for the “Tieguanyin” – the name of the cultivar that is the standard-bearer for Anxi oolong tea.
