From Zenjala Tea Company

A golden, amber medium-bodied Chinese oolong with undertones of dried fruit.

Translated as “Iron Goddess of Mercy,” this is a medium body oolong from Fujian Province; it is mellow with a strong fragrance and sweet aftertaste. After several infusions the fragrance still remains.
