About This Tea
Chinese tea name: 鐵觀音烏龍
Ti Kuan Yin or Iron Goddess of Mercy is one of the most famous Chinese oolong teas. Legend has it that a poor farmer had a Bodhisattva appear in his dream and point him in the direction of finding a tea shoot which he planted and nurtured in his barren fields which eventually flourished to acclaim. A Ti Kuan Yin has complex processing methods with bruising leaves and rolling them to name a few, resulting in its highly fragrant, orchid natural perfume taste with rich creamy notes. This one is roasted more to reveal an explosive floral bouquet reminiscent of gardenias with a lingering sweet finish.
