Iron Goddess aka Tie Guan Yin (铁观音) Oolong tea is a ball-rolled Oolong from Anxi County in Southern Fujian. Named after "Guanyin," the Goddess of Mercy venerated by Mahayana Buddhists, it is one of the most famous types of Chinese teas.

This particular Iron Goddess was produced in the 2018 Autumn season and is a lightly roasted variety. 


Aromas of florals and fresh cut grass, which is followed through in the flavour of the tea. A clean tasting, medium strength tea that strikes a great balance between light, fresh floral and a baked and roasted quality.

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
