Organic Superfine Moderately Roasted Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea

Recommend Brewing Guide:

Gaiwan 3oz Tea: 1bag 8 steeps: rinse,30s,45s,55s,70s,100s,120s,160s,180s 100ºC/212ºF
Teapot 8oz 1-2bags 3 – 10 mins 100ºC/212ºF

Steeped for 2 minutes at 92 degrees in David’s Tea Glass Perfect Mug after 5 second rinse

The smell of this tea dry is fantastically rich and vegetal. It reminds me of spinach dip and pumpernickel bread, really heavy and full of flavour. When steeped, it smells so nicely toasted, and tastes that way as well. Even a bit smoky, which was a surprise. Further infusions bring out more of that woodsy, roasted flavour. I’m a bit sad, as this was a single sample I received along with one of my Teavivre orders, and I wish I had more of this tea to enjoy.
