Organic Roasted Iron Goddess of Mercy
Notes of roasted almonds, honey and cocoa.
Gande Town, Anxi, Fujian province, China.
Our Organic Roasted Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin) hails from the hills of Gande town, where organic farming techniques of growing many wild flowers around the tea bushes are used, to attract the insects away from the growing tea, whilst also giving the tea its complex aroma. The tea leaves are slowly roasted to a medium level giving it it's crisp, toasty aromas, notes of fruitiness and hints of cocoa. A special oolong, it's earlier steeps show a sweeter profile, moving on to more cinnamon notes as the tea develops during each infusion.
Per cup: 1 tsp 90°C 4 minutes

For oolongs we prefer the gong fu method of brewing, using a larger amount of leaf and shorter gradually increasing steeping times of 30 seconds.
