Known as “the champagne of tea”, also known as Iron Goddess or Tie Guan Yin, and one of the world’s most beloved oolongs for its subtle color, delicate aroma and flavor, and soothing, “sunny” character. Its flavors may be perceived as sweet, floral, grassy, or toasty, and its fragrance is similarly complicated but soothing. Has a wide range of expression on multiple steeps, presenting some hints of earth and smoke in some cups, and pleasant light honey-like sweetness in others.
