Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea, also known as Iron Goddess of Mercy, hails directly from the village of Anxi (“Ahn-SHE”), the most esteemed source for this style of tea. The first infusion has a striking and unmistakably distinctive orchid fragrance. The color of the infusion is clear and bright gold. Its flavor is nothing short of pleasurable: sweet, super fine and long-lasting. Even the aftertaste of this organic hand-rolled oolong is sweet.
