Tie Guanyin - the Iron Goddess of Mercy - is one of the most famous Chinese oolong teas. This lightly roasted version is the perfect choice for the most delicate palates with its great floral fragrance and lingering notes of orchid and narcissus. The dry leaves are tightly rolled into emerald spheres that release sweetness when unfurled during brewing. The roasted notes emerge gently in the aftertaste, leaving a complex flavor in the palate and creating a sense of anticipation for the next brews, and the new sensorial journey that will come with them.


Quantity: 1g. of tea every 25ml. of water
Rinse: Before starting the infusion, drop the tea leaves in the teapot and cover them with boiling water for a few seconds. Then pour out all the liquid but leave the tea leaves in the teapot. Now add hot water to the teapot to make the first brew. (This method allows the tea leaves to rehydrate and to release a more intense brew.)
Brewing time: Begin with a 15 second brew. Increase with each successive brew as needed.
