Iron Goddess of Mercy
Ti Guan Yin Wulong
One of the most famed Chinese teas and named after the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, this tea has it's own special processing technique.
A premium Oolong- this oolong tea requires more steps in it's processing. After being plucked, aired, sun withered, cooled, shaken, fried, rolled and dried again, the tea leaves are then tightly rolled inside of a cloth bag before being dried and cooled again.
A lighter oxidised oolong tea, imparting a softer and sweeter profile, giving a sweet floral aroma, a honey liquor and an orchid-like flavour, with slight notes of nut.
