Tasting Notes:

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!

  • Tea leaves destined to become oolong teas are “bruised” to allow the release of some of the polphenol oxidase present in the leaves. Oolong teas are allowed to ferment for less time than black teas before they are heated and dried. Consequently, the catechin, theaflavin and thearubigin levels in oolong teas are generally between those of unoxidized green and white teas and completely oxidized black teas.

    WOW! I had tried Oolong tea before and was unimpressed. I received a sample with my order of Boulder Breakfast and decided to give it a try and now I am hooked! The taste is very floral, it reminds me of honeysuckle.—anne delano
    Tea is excellent lov it—David McNabb
    This is one of my favorite oblongs. It has a delicious taste and I would definitely put it on as one of my favorites!—Heidi Casso
    This excellent Iron Goddess tea is quite fragrant. It is both lighter and more aromatic than many of the varieties commonly sold in teahouses and supermarkets in southern China, but its taste is clean, without off-notes, and enjoyable. The leaves are easily usable at least two (and possibly three) times. I would highly recommend it.—Brant Goble
    A shining example of an oolong tea. Smooth, with that great taste that is uniquely oolong. Highly recommend.—Tami Hannon
    I've never had Oolong tea before, but I am really enjoying the nice flavor. hot or cold ;) i will be ordering more for sure!!!! I especially like that I can steep it multiple times and the flavor just keeps on coming.—Michael Harshman
    I just tried this and I love it!! I wasn't sure how to describe it, but after reading the "taste notes," I totally agree that it IS a cup of pure romance. Definitely delectable!—Samantha
    One sip of this tea and I was hooked. This is a very impressive oolong--it is full bodied and sweet, just slightly floral, and like all great oolongs, it only seems to get better with a second infusion. Oolong lovers rejoice, we have a mind blowing tie guan yin on our hands!—DJ New Moon
    I mixed this tea with dark roast organic and the pu'erh and achieved a luscious tea that is sweet and aromatic. It can be steeped 3 or 4 times.—Patricia
    This is a rather remarkable tea. It has a pleasant scent while it brews and a bold sweet body rich with a very agreeable flavor almost like a BOLD green tea. Its aftertaste comes off the tiniest bit bitter giving a subtle nod to black tea and helping to balance out the entire flavor. If you like Oolong then you will NOT be dissapointed by a cup of this and if you are new to tea drinking this may be a nice middle of the road flavor to get you hooked.—Umbreona
