oolong goddess

oolong goddess

Oolong tea from the Fujian province of China. In Mandarin, Ti Kuan Yin means 'iron goddess of mercy,' a name derived from local legend. This tea is arguably the finest of Chinese oolongs, with competition-grade varieties selling for thousand of dollars a pound. Upon sampling dozens of samples, we have selected this tea as the finest we have seen this year. We hope you agree with our decision. And will give our exquisite 'Ti Kuan Yin Trio' a try. Full-leaf tea in portable, individually wrapped bags - superior taste and maximum convenience.

After much care, the bush grew rich and full, with thick green leaves, which made a refreshing beverage when mixed with hot water. Thus the magical Ti Kuan Yin tea came into being.
