From Shanti Tea

Tightly rolled, very aromatic high mountain oolong

Iron Goddess, aka Ti Kwan Yin, is a high-mountain oolong tea from Fujian Province, China. It has a subtle but distinctive flavor, a pale golden color, and a light floral fragrance. The tightly rolled leaves unfurl into large broad green leaves that can be steeped several times. Oolong teas can be an acquired taste if one is used to black teas with milk, however this one is well worth the time, and is very highly recommended.

I’ve tried a few Tie Guan Yins before and this one is in my top 2 choices as far as leaf quality and taste. The aroma is fresh, sweet, and the leaves are truly whole – it only took one steep to see the original leaves come back to life. The oxidation of this organic variety is lighter than some, which might explain the fresh, bright quality I’m picking up from it. More green leaves than browner ones in Shanti’s version, it’s therefore perhaps not as “deep” of a flavor than some might be looking for, but I’ve prepared 28 ounces’ worth of good tea from the 2-cup measure of dry leave. Not too shabby.
If you’re not a fan of traditional senchas or chinese green teas, this oolong would be a good alternative as it retains many “green” vegetal qualities but with a sweetness the regular green teas don’t normally have Almost as if it’s been perfumed, but not as strong as a jasmine.
