Among the most famous of oolongs, Ti Kuan Yin (also called Tieguanyin, or roughly translated, “Iron Goddess of Mercy”) is named for the iron statue of Guanyin in a Chinese legend, in which a poor farmer is rewarded with the namesake tea for maintaining the statue’s shrine, despite lacking the wealth to repair it . Regardless its origins, Ti Kuan Yin is known for its delicious and aromatic characteristics. Our offering brews to floral fragrance and a delicate flavor of smooth orchid notes that lasts for many steeps.
