    • Longan Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong Tea
    • A rare, naturally sweet and fruity oolong from Taiwan, which you can enjoy straightaway or keep as a 'vintage' tea for enjoying in later years.



    Conceived 30 years ago by a tea master from Nantou, Taiwan, this delectable re-interpretation of Iron Goddess of Mercy oolong tea consists of dense, little nuggets rolled from hand-gathered ‘sparrow tongue’ tea pickings, each with one bud and two supporting leaves.


    A final roasting and caramelization with branches from the longan fruit tree gives the tea a distinctive, sweet aroma, along with a warm, roasty mellowness and a golden russet-hued liquor.


    Longan Iron Goddess of Mercy can be placed into storage for vintaging over time but we doubt one can resist drinking this tea instead.


    Our artisan tea is made with utmost care. To retain its pure, fresh qualities, brew with soft water and store in a dry, air-tight and light-proof container (in a fridge preferably) for 6 months


    This tea is supplied in a zip-loc foil pack to prolong its fresh flavour, within a beautiful paper wrap hand-stamped with an extract from the 8th century tea classic Cha Jing.
