From Golden Dragon

- TieKuanyin, also called Iron Goddess of Mercy, is one of the most popular oolong from Anxi, Southern Fujian.
- It enjoys the reputation of “green leaves floating in bright red with ever lasting fragrance”.
- The Tea leaf is rolled delicately and tightly with a fresh green in color.
- When brewed, it turns to a dark amber and the flavor to a complex, invigorating cup. Tasting mellow with its unique, long lasting flowery aroma when it is infused even several times.

Nice pale yellow liquor with a wonderfully floral taste. But not too floral. Just right. Wish it was offered organic somewhere as I’ve been in an Oolong state of mind recently. I liked the third infusion the best and can probably get another three more I think!

Gaiwan brewed this one and found it to be pretty impressive. A light Ti Kuan Yin that is not overly floral and a little on the buttery side from how they go. Light TKY is not a favorite of mine but I can see this one making a good ice tea. Regardless at $3.65 a tin Golden Dragon brand tea is nice for trying things out without much risk.

It feels like I haven’t really enjoyed a good new oolong tea in a while. I’ve found interesting oolongs, as well as replenished familiar oolongs, but never stumbled upon an oolong that can surprise me.

This is definitely one of the nicer tins I’ve purchased, closer in shape and design to the first double covered tin that contained Chocolate tea. The tin is covered in writing I can’t understand, aside from the name of the tea, of course. As well, the red tin is also covered with familiar designs of landscapes and a golden dragon on the lid.

The leaves are very complex and detailed, as they are tightly rolled. They vary shades of deep green, with stems scattered about. The aroma is wonderfully flowery, with a handsome roasted body.

Steeping brings out the buttery roasted oolong scent, scaling back the floral, and making for an increasingly complex aroma. The brew is a handsome deep amber color and very clean.

The flavor is soft, mellow and a nice balance of floral and roasted tones. There are multiple dimensions with each sip, as you catch different characteristics, most faint behind the buttery and floral flavors.

The balance and complexities give quite an interesting and delicious oolong. The mellow floral flavors make this an appropriate afternoon tea, as the strong floral aroma can linger.

Good midday tea – very flowery and distinct.
