Our Organic Baked Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin) is a medium roast oolong specifically chosen for balance between the hearty flavours of toasted grains and roasted almond and a honeyed character.
Roasting Tie Guan Yin so as not to ruin the flavour produced from the previous process of drying, wilting, oxidising and rolling the tea requires a lot of skill and patience from tea caftsmen. During the roasting process, the tea will be roasted 3 times for over 8 hours of each time. The tea master must carefully control the temperature and judge the tea’s quality with his experience.
There are many roasted teas on the market, but few that are truly well balanced and that allow the underlying complexities of the tea to shine through and evolve through each steep, such as this tea.
