Iron Goddess Tea
This certified 100% organic Tie Guan Yin hails directly from the village of Anxi (“Ahn-SHE”), the most esteemed source for this top 10 Chinese tribute tea. Located in the rolling tea-covered hills of Fujian Province, at the base of greater peaks. This green spot of heaven on earth is revered for the cultivation and crafting of this highest grade of oolong, also referred to as “Monkey Picked” oolong. Legend says this tea was picked from the highest elevations by trained monkeys. Iron Goddess imperial oolong 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 and refreshing. After three or four infusions with the organic Iron Goddess, you’ll likely begin to understand and embrace the concept of what it means to get “tea drunk”!

Tea leaves destined to become oolong teas are “bruised” to allow the release of some of the polphenol oxidase present in the leaves. Oolong teas are allowed to ferment for less time than black teas before they are heated and dried. Consequently, the catechin, theaflavin and thearubigin levels in oolong teas are generally between those of unoxidized green and white teas and completely oxidized black teas.
