From Tribute Tea Company

Iron Buddha is one of the most famous oolongs in the world. Named after the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, Iron Buddha commands respect with its full-body flavor and long-lasting astringent aftertaste. During the Qing Dynasty, Tie Guan Yin was designated an Imperial Tribute Tea.

Ours is a 2012, spring-picked, lightly-oxidized, hand-rolled leaf. With strong floral aromas of melted butter on sweet corn, expect flavors of seaweed, roasted corn, and orchid, with a mild, vegetal bitterness, similar to green kale. Its texture is slightly creamy with an impressively long-lasting aftertaste…

Notes: seaweed, sweet corn, orchid

Infusion: 190ºF / 88ºC for 1-2 minutes

Origin: Anxi, southern Fujian Province, China

This is another sample from Brett @ Tribute Tea, which BTW is in Chicago, not to be confused with another company of the same name in Seattle
This is a lovely sweet cup of yum! Kind of buttery, caramel corn & yellow flowers.
The sweet aftertaste lingers, with an almost apricot mouth.
All of the teas I’ve tried from Tribute have been tasty & of excellent quality.


I didn’t even realize there was another tea company in Chicago (Aside from the 5 I knew about). Do you know if they have a physical store I can go into?


hmmm need to try this company out. :)
