Iron Goddess (Tie Guan Yin)
This very fragrant tea is from Anxi in the Fujian Province of China. This hand picked oolong is a very green, only gently oxidized, oolong tea. This late March tea has a powerful orchid scent, creamy sweet flavor and pale yellow liquor. The small leaves are tightly rolled allowing flavor to be released with each new infusion. Iron Goddess is the most famous of the oolongs from Fujian. 2 tsp. can be infused with 10oz. boiling water 8 times.
