Ti Kwan Yin Oolong

Oolong tea is semi fermented which is one of the reasons it has such a unique character. The semi fermentation gives the tea a little bit more body than a green tea but less body than a black tea ... and interestingly it gives the flavor a very unique twist. You will see (particularly in the infused leaf) that the edges of the leaves are slightly bruised (brownish). The reason for this is that the leaves are lightly bruised to start the oxidation process. During this process the characteristic curly leaf is also created. After 15-25 minutes (depending upon ambient temperature and humidity levels) the tea is fired locking in the special flavor profile. This particular grade is sweet with a fragrant finish and has no bitter notes.

There are several grades of Ti Kuan Yin (a.k.a Iron Goddess of Mercy). This particular type is the premium grade - below the superior grade but have many of the characteristics of top Ti Kuan Yin Oolongs.

The name Ion Goddess of Mercy came from a farmer named Mr. Wei. At the temple dedicated to Kuan Yin he was asked what is the name of his special tea. It must be called Ti Kuan Yin in honor of the iron statue to Kuan Yin he replied. As the name was a good one, it has never been changed since that time.
