From Min River Tea

A charcoal-roasted dark Oolong tea, the affectionately named Old Iron (lao tie) falls halfway between a green and red Oolong. The flavour carries the clarity and pure taste of a green Oolong, but with the more subtle deep roasted tones of a red. Often ignored even in China, nevertheless this tea is one of our favourite brews to date and a great everyday drink.

Truly lovely. Love the charcoal roasted aspect while still retaining many of the qualities of a green Tie Guan Yin.
