The leaves of this Iron Goddess are medium to darker in color, but they are distinctively more buttery and vegetal overall in flavor. I don’t really pick up many floral or fruity notes on this one. It’s not plain, but rather a nice basic oolong with a very nice amber colored liquid.

Usually, this is a decent option when I’m not really in the mood for something specific. The leaves produce lower amounts of astringency and there is a nice warm amount of energy after drinking it’s tea.

Bio

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
