Iron Goddess of Mercy | Oolong Tea
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”!
This tea was harvested and produced October 10-11, 2021 by our friend Mr. Lin Rui Fu in Anxi, Fujian. It is made from a 1 bud, 3-4 leaf pluck from the Tieguanyin cultivar growing at 2,400 feet. We’re very happy with this lot and highly recommend it.
The name "Iron Goddess of Mercy” is the English translation for the “Tieguanyin” cultivar. The loose pronunciation is “tee-gwan-yin.” It’s origin and primary place of production is Anxi county in the Fujian province of China. This tea is one of the most popular teas in China and one of the pillars of traditional Chinese oolong tea.
