Tranquil Tuesdays Iron Goddess Oolong Tea - 30g
Country of Origin: China
City / Village: Anxi
Grown in the Anxi region of Fujian province, this is a wonderfully fragrant Oolong with floral, orchid-like notes mingled with delicate honey-chestnut aromas. Flavors of toasted chestnut and dried fruits within a rich yet delicate brew.
The name comes from a story about an aging farm worker who gave what respects he could to the goddess (bodhisattva) of compassion and mercy. She rewarded him with the treasure of a single tea plant, which yielded some of the finest tea ever grown. He shared cuttings with neighboring farms and the region became well known for its exceptional tea.
We recommend a pre-steep where you douse the leaves in the brewing water (at brewing temperature) for 10 seconds before pouring off the water. Start brewing for about a minute and build up to a longer period that suits your taste. Typically, no more than 2 minutes. Brew with clean, fresh water at 212 F. The results are well worth the effort!
