From Wilkinson's of Norwich

There are several grades of Ti Kuan Yin (a.k.a Iron Goddess of Mercy). This particular type is the premium grade . It has been written that Ti Kuan Yin is at first bitter, then sweet and finishes with a fragrance, which lingers on your palate. We find this particular grade is sweet with a fragrant finish and has no bitter notes. The name Iron Goddess of Mercy came from a farmer named Mr. Wei. At the temple dedicated to Kuan Yin he was asked what is the name of his special tea. It must be called Ti Kuan Yin in honor of the iron statue to Kuan Yin he replied. As the name was a good one, it has never been changed.

Thank you, KittyLovesTea, for a sample of this!

For some reason I never added this to my cupboard on Steepster. It looks like this tea was just recently added so perhaps that’s why.

I used the whole sample (approx. 3tsp) all at once for two mugs worth of tea (one for me, one for the hubs). Overall it had a nice smooth taste with no bitterness and bit of a mineral taste. I’m not very good with picking up on subtleties of oolong teas since I’m not an oolong drinker, but overall it was a nice tea to try out :).
