Aged Tie Guan Yin, also known as Iron Goddess of Mercy, is a premium quality medium oxidized (30%-40%) amber oolong from Anxi County, Fujian Province, China.

The name of the tea is steeped in legend of divine origin. A poor farmer restored and maintained a dilapidated temple to the bodhisattva of compassion, Guan Yin.  To show her appreciation for his dedication, Quan Yin appeared to him in a dream one night and told him that there was a gift for him in the fields around the temple.  The next morning he looked for his gift and found a lone tea plant.  He nurtured the plant and named the tea it produced "Tie Guan Yin", after the bodhisattva.

There are many different styles of Tie Guan Yin and this one has been stored in earthenware jars for a minimum of five years. It is baked every twelve to remove excess moisture.

The tightly rolled leaves yield a medium-bodied, rich, mellow and smooth, full-flavored infusion with notes of fruit, wood, toast, and charcoal.

Leaves can be infused multiple times - until the leaves have completely unfurled and released all of their flavors.
