From The Mountain Tea co

Smoky, sweet caramel and dark chocolate flavors were developed when this highly oxidized TieGuanYin was baked at a high temperature using a charcoal firing. A full, rich brew that delivers a full roasted infusion with solid notes of cinnamon and amber. Good for 5+ infusions.

Other names: Dark Roast Iron Goddess of Mercy, 重炭焙特級猴王鐵觀音

Water: 6 oz.; 200-212°F
Tea Leaves: 5 grams
Steep Time: 2 min. 30 sec.
Brewing Instructions
In a 6 oz. vessel, place 5 grams of tea and pour 205 degree water directly into the center of the cup. Steep for 2 minutes 30 seconds (more or less adjusted to your preference) on the initial brew, halving the time on the second brew, and then increasing that in increments of 30 seconds for subsequent brews. For lighter infusions, use hotter water and half the brew time.

I’ve been drinking this on and off at work for about a week now. This is FANTASTIC.
It’s dark and roasty, with out being in your face smoky. I don’t what else to say about it. It’s good, really good – up there with the best of the best oolongs I’ve tried. This is probably my 2nd favorite dark oolong. (Not quite sure why, but the liquid is a bit purple – a hint of mauve – very unusual, pretty cool)
Thank you so much yyz for sending me this sample.


Interesting about the mauve…


I opened this up because I thought it might be something you would enjoy trying. Now I have to try it.


yyz – if you like dark roasty oolongs – you should try it. I love it – thank you so much!!!
Morgana – dunno – it’s has just a hint of purple/mauve tinge to it, I haven’t seen that before.
