Loose Leaf Oolong Tea
Tie Guan Yin, or 'Iron Goddess of Mercy', is one of China's most renowned oolong teas and is steeped in colourful legends of divine apparitions and hidden treasure. It is cultivated in Anxi in Fujian Province, South East China, nurtured by Fujian's mild climate and plentiful rainfall.
A complex process involving different stages of plucking, withering, drying and fine rolling produces crinkly, delicate leaves of very lightly oxidised tea. The liquor is a rich golden colour, the aroma sweet with hints of fruit and the flavour complex, honeyed and with caramel notes.
