Iron Goddes of Mercy from Taiwan

Traditionally processed leaf from cultivar Tie Guan Yin that originally comes from a Chinese Anxi region in Fujian province. Taiwanese Muzha district is famous thanks to the excellent teas coming from this cultivar. Its history in this region is not very long, though. Tea was brought by the family Chang in 1919 and since then it was successfully grown and it’s quality and fame already nearly match its relative Tie Guan Yin from Anxi, China.
The dry leaves are ball-shaped, have a very dark iron-like colour and have full intense sweet baked flavour with a strong nutty hint. Brown – green in a cup with full intense sweet baked honey aroma, with velvet soft, creamy very harmonious flavour with distinct tones of pickled fruits, plum butter, sugar cane and walnuts. Tea can stand many infusions, we strongly recommend it for long archiving.
Cultivar - Hong Xin Wai Wei Tao (Tie Guan Yin) / 紅心歪尾桃
Region - Muzha / 木柵
