Tie Guan Yin is a classic variety of oolong tea. Meaning "Iron Goddess of Mercy" in Chinese, this tea is often valued for its unique flavors derived from a complex processing.
After rolling, the leaves of this Taiwanese oolong are wrapped in linen and roasted over charcoal, a process that may be repeated multiple times to produce the perfect malty flavors and oak tones. This tea is reminiscent of nature and oak trees. For people who love oolongs, Tie Guan Yin is not to be missed.
