From T2

A tea with many fables; Ti Kuan Yin can be translated to Iron Goddess of Mercy. It is said that the goddess Guanyin (Kuan Yin), appeared one night in a farmers dream and told him of a secret cave that he should visit to find a gift of thanks for his worship. The farmer awoke and travelled to the cave where he found a single tea shoot. He took the shoot home, planted it and watched it grow into a tea bush. He shared the tea with all his friends, naming it after the goddess herself: Ti Kuan Yin. This oolong is a treasured, premium tea in China, and has an elegant, nutty taste with sweet peachy notes and a light astringency.

Brew: 1 tsp per 250mls, brew at 80 degrees 3-6 mins. This tea is able to be re-brewed up to 3 times

Serve: As is

I realise that giving this a rating of 100% is probably a bit dramatic, but I think this might just be the best tea I have ever consumed. Or at least my favourite, it certainly lives up to its reputation! I’m not going to lie here – what attracted me was the rad name, it’s the most metal name for a tea possible! The tea did match its name, delivering a gentle, sweet bite with a pleasantly rich warmth. Oh my god, it was SO good! I love the story behind the tea too. Guanyin certainly deserves all my thanks.

Flavors: Nutty

Lol, I like the metal reference ;-)
