Iron Goddess of Mercy - one of the best known China Oolongs. Nice rolled leaf style, not too oxidized. The cup is a very pleasant mellow taste with a faint note of natural smokiness with a good finish without astringency. A good tea for any season, an all-day cup. Also sometimes spelled Ti Kuan Yin or Ti Guan Yin.

Tea Education

No wonder they call Oolong the Philosopher's Drink. It is mellow, fragrant, long-lasting and mystical. One of the many Oolongs that get better as they cool. Make full use of this tea - one teaspoon goes a long way. It will withstand multiple infusions so save the infused leaves and add 20 seconds to each subsequent steep. There is a lingering sweetness when it cools. An excellent accompaniment to food, great with dessert and an all-day treat. Also known as Iron Goddess of Mercy.
