Art of Tea – Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong (Green)

Iron Goddess of Mercy (often transliterated as Ti Kuan Yin or Tie Guanyin) is your standard oolong.  Art of Tea‘s Green Iron Goddess of Mercy is a full-leaf loose tea. They also offer a ‘roasted’ variety with higher oxidation, which I am very interested in trying.

This is one of my favorite teas that I have in the house.  It has a medium flavor strength, crisp with a hint of sharpness, that is definitely in the woodsy flavor family (but not smoky!). The tea slowly unfurls over repeated steepings, and looks good on display in an open-topped infusing basket. With a medium-size spoonful, I can resteep for 4-8 (large) cups.
