A classic oolong, intriguing lingering floral aroma, lightly orchid and gentle astringency.
Often referred to as the tea of poets, "Iron Goddess" is our traditional style Tie guan yin oolong. The leaves unfurl slowly to release a lush, goldish liquor that is fruity. The first steep is known for its aroma; subsequent steeps are known for their flavour. Like all Tie guan yins, this lot will steep multiple times. It is also a great tea to drink with friends using the "gung fu" brewing method - plenty of leaf, short & rapid steeps, keep pouring. Long after tasting, you will notice the taste of this tea has lingered to be enjoyed yet again.
