From White2Tea

Iron Arhat is an oolong tea from the Fujian province of China.

The name tieluohan literally translates as Iron Arhat, one of the more famous varieties of yancha [rock oolong]. This is a medium-heavy three roast tea with deeper inner florality that rests beneath the cooling, minty character that lies under the fire. This tea has excellent endurance and can be re-steeped many times.

Each purchase is for 25 grams of tea.

Gongfu!

This is a super flavourful oolong tea, even really early on!! Medium roasty toasty goodness, with top notes of campfire wood, charcoal & semi salted peanuts, and more of a sweet cocoa and juicy overripe plum in the body of the sip. More fragrant and rich floral notes emerge as the leaves open up, married with the syrupy stonefruit/plum. It feels very deep and well balanced!

Maybe eight or nine steeps, wager I could’ve done another three or four though.

Now that I have a general idea of the taste, next time I think I’ll make this one up in my yancha yixing…

(Good song – but playing it a lot lately just ‘cause of Spooky Season, but it’s really awesome in general and I think I’m still gonna be hooked on it long after Halloween…)
