Iron Goddess of Mercy | Oolong Tea
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.
