This legendary oolong is a cup of pure romance. It produces a beautiful jade colored infusion. The flavor has a natural sweetness, with lingering notes of Spring greens. The Iron Goddess is a Tie Guan Yin oolong from Fujian Province, China. Hand harvested and produced through a traditional process whereby the large tea leaves are very tightly rolled. This is the one of the most revered Chinese oolongs.

We named our tea for its origins, after Guanyin, the Buddhist goddess of compassion, for whom this style of tea is named. There are several versions of a legend dating back to the 18th century that tell of Guanyin helping a poor tea farmer discover the extraordinary tea plants and process which are now used to produce this tea. Buddhists believe that when one of their adherents departs from this world, they are placed by Guanyin in the heart of a lotus then sent home to the Western Paradise.

Oolong teas are often cited as one of the best loose leaf teas for weight loss. What makes this tea unforgettable is its delicate aroma of lilac, and honey-smooth taste. Losing weight never tasted so good! This Chinese oolong tea also is USDA certified organic.
