Our Organic Anxi Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin), is known as one of the Ten Great Chinese Teas and is grown in Gande Town, Anxi, Fujian Province China. In March, 1995, Anxi was named as the “Home of Chinese Oolong Tea” by Ministry of Agriculture and is famous for producing excellent Tie Guan Yin.
In the tea fields in Gande Town, wild flowers grow amongst the tea hedges which attract the insects away from the precious tea leaves. By not using pesticides and relying on the natural flora to protect the tea and promote biodiversity, an outstanding tea is produced with a complex orchid aroma, smooth vegetal body, sweet honey notes and floral undertones. It is resilient to multiple infusions.
