Tie Guan Yin, Iron Goddess of Mercy

In stock: 18

One of the most famous Chinese oolong teas is Tie Guan Yin (or TGY).  Tea connoisseurs may have heard of this same tea by the names of Ti Kuan Yin, Iron Buddha, or Iron Goddess of Mercy. Regardless of what you call it, its distinctive flavor and light floral fragrance are what make this oolong tea so famous. Our Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess of Mercy has a light golden-amber infusion with a smooth body and sweet finish. It is beautifully floral and fragrant- truly a tea masterpiece.

Besides the intoxicating flavor of course, Tie Guan Yin is also popular because of its numerous healing properties.  Some of the benefits of this tea include anti-aging, anti-cancer, the treatment and prevention of diabetes, and an aid in weight loss. When you combine a great tasting tea classic, pleasant fragrance and the health benefits, you can see why this tea is so sought after!

There were some reviews recently about the Oolong smelling and tasting bad. Currently it tastes great! I fell in love with this tea like 15 years ago and I still love a good brew. Tradition you should pour a little hot water over leaves to “rise” then make your batch. I have used mine for 3 pours tasting amazing in all the last pour not as fragrant. Very calming tea to me. Remember everyone has different taste buds so just try it out. Happy sipping.

Amazing! This tea has a lovely sweet, pleasant aroma and taste. I love it. A little
goes a long way as the tea leaves are large. It is like a beautiful sunny day!

Good taste. I feel spring is in my cup. The tea is fresh, mild and sweet. It is different from An Xi Tie Guan Yin. Personally I like this one more as it does not hurt my stomach.
