Description

This Iron Goddess Oolong is roasted to what we call the “caramel” level — a happy medium point between the traditional dark roast and the new style light/fragrant roast. Many Iron Wulong producers have come to realize the fine line between well roasted and over roasted.

The brew possesses a rich caramel body. The smoky, charcoal, characteristic “iron,” (鐵) flavor is subdued but still persists at a pleasant level.
