A large leaf, high quality oolong tea.

Our Iron Goddess Tea celebrates the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin (or Ti Kuan Yin).

According to one legend, Guanyin appeared in a dream to a poor farmer who worshipped at her falling down temple. She told him of a cave behind the temple where treasure awaited to be shared. In the cave the farmer found a single tea sapling which he planted and nurtured it into a large bush. It produced an exceptionally fine tea and he shared cuttings with his neighbours. Their fortunes turned and they were able to repair the temple.

From Fujian province, China, this is a 15% fermentation, with a very large leaf tightly rolled into dark, compact balls (often seen as iron like), is a very smooth drink with a naturally sweet, aromatic, nutty taste.
