Literally translated, Tie Guan Yin means ‘Iron Goddess of Mercy’. Beautiful to taste and stunning on the eye, this is one of the finest grades of Oolong tea and comes from the Fujian province in China. Oolong undergoes a very fine 8 stage process that is complex and requires expertise. The final stages of Oolong tea involve hand rolling many, many times so when steeped in water it unravels, thus opening into beautiful whole leaves. The infusing leaves will slowly turn the water a Greenish to Yellowish colour, and will wash a sweet taste across your pallet. These leaves can be re-brewed a few times until the flavours are exhausted.
