From Bird Pick Tea & Herb

Origin: Zhejiang
Brew: Golden yellow
Flavor: Honey and fruit flavors with a minty aftertaste
Legend says of an old farmer who, while strolling through his tea gardens noticed a rundown temple that held an iron statue of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. For several months, he took it upon himself to tidy up and light incense in the temple. The grateful goddess soon appeared to him in a dream and told him of treasure. The next day, he found a single tea shoot and after planting it in his garden, it sprouted into one of the most delicious teas in China.

Tikuanyin, also known as Iron Buddha or Iron Goddess of Mercy, is considered a green oolong tea – a variation from the oolong tea family. This tea is made when the oolong processing is done in a shorter period of time. The result is a brew that’s more like a green tea in color with vegetal tones, but a mix of nutty fragrances that are present in most oolongs.

First tasting note for this one? Now I feel rotten it took me this long to write a review. Thanks for the samples a while back, Bird Pick! I had to sip this one today because I feel terrible I haven’t reviewed it yet. Sweet yet vegetal fragrance to the dark green tightly rolled bundles. All three steeps were delicious, with the main characteristic of this oolong being very sweet. The steeps get better and better though – with the second steep having hints of peach. I think I steeped it with the best parameters possible. The third definitely wasn’t bitter or oversteeped — just gets deeper with flavor, though this one isn’t distinct enough to make it my favorite oolong. It can’t really be put in any of the vegetal, floral, butter/milk, or fruity oolong types. This is a sweet and subtle oolong, maybe for those who don’t want a strong oolong. This is delicious but there are so many good oolongs out there!
