Royal Monkey Picked Iron Goddess, (Monkey Picked Ti Kwan Yin)

This wonderful oolong tea comes from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province. Gongfu style preparation is recommended for this high grade Ti Kwan Yin. The tea's name came from a legend that told of monkeys being used by monks to retrieve this tea from the high mountains. In general, monkey picked tea are from wild tea plants that grow in inaccessible places, such as on high cliff faces. When brewed, this golden liquor gives a floral flavor with a hint of chestnut and a delightful aftertaste.

Not what I expected...
This Ti Guan Yin variety is different that what I'm used to. The price led me to believe it would be of higher quality. I still enjoy it but with gongfu brewing I can only get 4 maybe 5 steepings befor it becomes bland and unflavored. The armoma is very intoxicating though and it was a learning experience.

This is the best tea i have ever drank. I use my leaves over and over, I get about two gallons of tea out of two tablespoons of leaves. I love it's delicate orchid scent.

A bold green tea
This was a nice surprise, a strong green tea that got my attention. Plus the name is so cool.

Great Tea!
This is my favorite tea by far. Brews a light green color. It's amazing how large the leaves are once they have rehydrated. I drink mine with a little bit of sugar. Great afternoon tea. It can be steeped multiple times. I will be buying more once this bag runs out.

One of the most complex teas I've ever drank.
When I opened the pouch I got a whiff that was slightly floral, but the fireworks really began when I tossed a scoop into my teapot of water. As I was about to put the lid on top, an amazing floral scent wafted up to my nose, reminiscent of being in a greenhouse of tropical flowers. I knew I was in for a real treat in 4 minutes. And I was right, as it had hints of Honeysuckle, Orange Blossom, Grape Hyacinth and Roses, alongside a delightfully chewy vegetal taste. There were hints of Bok Choy, Escarole, Spinach and Asparagus, with a background flavoring of Wax Beans. Of all the loose teas I've tried so far, this has had the most complex bundling of flavors. On the second steep, I braced myself for a weak reminiscence of the first offering, but OMG!, it was just as flavorful the second time around, with only the slightest bit of astringency added on.

Oolongly perfect!
My favorite oolong! It has character but it is not strong. Very clean after-taste. I enjoy it after lunch or dinner (sometimes with food). It helps with digestion. I rebrew it twice and the second time is as tasty and refreshing. To me, it is better than any flavored tea. It has its own aroma.

Best Tie Guan Yin I've Tried for the Money
High-quality Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) Oolong for a very reasonable price. After my extensive research trying to find the best value for a more than decent quality Tie Guan Yin Oolong, I was blown away by the amazing nutty and extravagant aftertaste of this one. Another home-run from It seems as though they never fail to impress!

I purchase this tea for it's health properties and also for help with weight loss. When I first tried this tea, I didn't like the taste; but after a couple minutes, I had this great after taste. It is simply wonderful. Give this tea a try because it's wonderful. I also like the fact that it can be infused more than once. I had originally purchased it at a local retailer for twice the price. GLAD THAT I FOUND I will shop here again.
