Chinese Iron Goddess Oolong Loose Leaf Tea

Chinese Iron Goddess Oolong Tin

50g Tin of Chinese Iron Goddess Oolong Loose Leaf Tea.

This oolong (black dragon) tea is known as the Tieguanyin or Tie Guan Yin - the Iron Goddess of Mercy.

As a tea category, oolong sits between green and black - there are as many grades of oolong as there are fine wines.

Tasting Notes

The first infusion has a succulent sweetness with later infusions leading to green floral notes. Each time you infuse the leaves different subtleties are revealed.

Infusion Guide

We recommend using 2-4g of tea per 150ml of water. 

For the optimum infusion, 'wash' the leaves first with boiling water (for 10 seconds) - then pour this away.

Then use the same, slightly cooled water for subsequent infusions.

Infuse for 1-2 minutes to your taste.

This Oolong can be infused up to 6 times.

 

Storage and Shelf life: The BBE of the sealed pouch of tea is 5 years. Once the pouch is open and decanted into the storage tin, we recommend drinking it within 6 months. 

A percentage of revenue from Rare Tea is invested into Rare Charity (rarecharity.com) - to implement social change through education.
