From Dream About Tea

This traditional “Ti Kwan Yin” from An Xi county, Fujian, China. Moderate oxidation and rolling of the leaves brings out the smooth flavor and slightly floral taste.

A well defined delicate and airy oolong. Aromas of white flowers and fruit lift from the pale greenish-amber cup and draw you into the mellow flavors of chestnuts, orchids and sweet cream with mild vegetal notes. The mouth feel is elegantly soft and almost milky, yet not full bodied or clunky at all, highlighting the flavor profile beautifully. Fantastic balanced acidity which coaxes notes of fresh berries that seem to not be there until the finish. Almost no astringency at all… I honestly do not think you can over steep these leaves. As difficult a process as it is to make good oolong, this one really shines. I emailed the shop to inquire as to the exact sourcing as I would really like to know the specifics. I have had many ti kwan yins, as it seems every tea shop carries it… this one really stands out.

The first Iron Goddess of Mercy I have liked and it’s lovely, mouth fillingly sweet and floral, but not at all cloying. It has a touch of vegetal to keep it grounded. Warms you for a while, right down to your tum.
