Origin: Fujian Province, China
Chinese Name: Tieguanyin
Tieguanyin "Iron Goddess of Mercy” has such a significant presence in Chinese Oolong tea that it is often synonymous with Oolong itself. We were particularly delighted to come across this new and particularly unique lot. Its light oxidation preserves both the powerful floral aroma and inherent richness of these deep green leaves, while a very light roasting brings forth its sweetness. Notes of ripe honeydew melon and a vegetal sweetness that is reminiscent of shade-grown Japanese green tea saturate the palate.
