Tea Story

Tie Guan Yin oolong - also known as ‘Iron Goddess of Mercy’ or ‘Iron Buddha’ - is the most famous of oolong teas. Our exquisite loose leaf version of this popular luxury oolong tea variety hails from the southern Fujian Province of China. The tea is painstakingly produced using the traditional ‘Baorou’ technique. When applying this method, the withered, bruised and oxidized tea leaves are wrapped in a cloth and delicately rolled to form tightly knitted pellets.

This outstanding luxury oolong tea imparts a wonderfully thick and creamy texture and a rich flavour with sweet nectar notes that linger on the tongue. This is a rich and complex, yet deeply satisfying tea which can be infused many times. Unlike other teas, the flavour of oolong is enhanced by brewing it multiple times.

Legend has it that Tie Guan Yin is named after an iron statue of the Bodhisattva of Compassion - ‘Guanyin’. Guanyin came to a poor farmer in his dreams and gave him the location of a great treasure. The treasure was a tea shoot which he planted in his field. He harvested and produced the tea and named it ‘Tie Guan Yin’ - ‘Iron Goddess of Mercy’.

Ingredients: Pure Chinese Oolong Tea.

Incredible Tea
Saturday, 16 February 2019  |  Jake

Full of flavour. Creamy and floral notes stand out just as much as you'd want. Also, in western brewing, it can be comfortably infused 4 or 5 times. Currently my favourite tea that I've ever had!
