Grand Tea & Imports Roasted Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong Tea (4 oz)
Single bush loose leaf tea sourced and hand-packed for Umamicart with Grand Tea & Imports.
"Tieguanyin," literally translated to Roasted Iron Goddess of Mercy, is a complex, dark roasted tea that steeps to a velvety, amber brew. It carries a sweet and charred caramel taste, which is brought forth by the longer roasting time in its production. This variety also bears the classic orchid aroma that slowly unravels and lingers on the palate and unique to tieguanyin.
