Iron Goddess of Mercy

€ 5,25

Tieguanyin, named after the Chinese goddess of mercy Guanyin, is the most famous oolong available. In terms of oxidation, oolong tea stands between green and black tea.

Our tieguanyin is hand harvested from the Wu-Yi tea plant directly descending from the original tea plants, which were planted in the 19th century in Taiwan. It is oxidized according to the traditional method and baked in bamboo. The leaves are then rolled into small balls, which slowly unfold as they come into contact with water. This tea can be infused multiple times (we do it up to five times!).

Rinse with hot water first.

Use 1gr/100ml to 85º C water, infuse for three minutes.
