From Red Blossom Tea Company

Our Iron Goddess of Mercy, Monkey Picked was the first Anxi oolong we imported when we opened shop a quarter century ago. It has remained the cornerstone of our Anxi oolong offerings. Monkey-picked comes from Anxi County, Fujian. Harvested in Autumn, the leaf is 30% oxidized – achieved by first bruising the leaf with a bamboo drum and then allowing it to whither and oxidize. Once the proper degree of oxidation is reached, the leaves are medium roasted. The resulting aroma is an unforgettable comingling of roasted nuts, ripe peaches and gardenias, in a liquor that is surprisingly light and sweet.
