Iron Goddess of Mercy

As the story goes, the tea plant from which this Taiwanese oolong gets its name was left to a pious farmer by a Buddhist god as a way of thanks for this man’s dedicated upkeep of the village’s temple.

This velvety and creamy tea has intricate juxtapositions of roasted buckwheat and chestnut with sweet dried apricot, a winning combination straight from the gods.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.
Origin: Nantou County, Taiwan

If we're talking about authetic Iron Goddess of Mercy

you'll like "Premium Grade Anxi "Ben Shan" Oolong Tea" better.

I need Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin in local language) to boost my day every day and used to get new crop every year (before covid) from both mainland china and taiwain. Started exploring US retailers and just can't seriously find similar teas.

This is a disappointment.

This.

This tea sold me on loose tea in general and on oolong in specific. Will be ordering again.

Delicious

This is one of my favorite teas! I love oolong tea in general, but this tea is especially smooth and nutty. I love it!

my favorite oolong

I had the subscription and tried a lot of oolong teas from Tea Runners and another tea company. This is my absolute favorite. I thought I was strictly a strong black tea person but I really enjoy this tea. I think the second steep is stronger than the first and the third is getting weaker. I will keep this as a staple in my tea rotation.
