A traditional style Tieguanyin oolong – medium oxidized made with large rolled leaves that will open to offer sweet, tasty , almost spicy flavors. More commonly known as "Iron Goddess", this oolong offers a heady aroma. It is grown in the oolong-famous AnXi area of Fujian Province.

Lot Notes. The leaves are large and rolled with shades of green and deep brown tones - the result of the oxidization process. Offers all the notes and flavors we look for in a traditional style Tieguanyin. Lot was harvested in late April/early May 2022.

Tea Facts. Locally often called "sweet flower", this oolong is harvested about 4-6 weeks after the first greens and white teas of spring. Grown in the coastal mountains near Xiamen, the tea's nuanced tastes are created in a multi-step, hours-long, process of oxidizing and rolling the leaves. It is made in the traditional, medium-oxidized style favored in China.

Tasting Notes. Offers a full-mouth flavor that is lite spice with stone fruit notes. Steeped, the leaves open to deep green colors and its flavors will fully open by the 2nd steep providing a wonderful floral aroma with a lingering aftertaste. The liquor is rich & light-yellow. 

Brewing Suggestions. Use 3-4 grams per 8 ounces of water. Water temp is best if boiling. Rinse the leaves briefly to awaken them, pour this water off and re-infuse. Steep for 2-3 minutes and taste. This tea will steep multiple times.
