One of the most famous Chinese oolong teas is the Tie Guan Yin (or TGY). Tea connoisseurs may have heard of this same tea by the names of Ti Kuan Yin, Iron Buddha, or Iron Goddess of Mercy. Regardless of what you call it, its distinctive flavor and light floral fragrance are what make this oolong tea so famous. Our Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess of Mercy has a light golden-amber infusion with a smooth body and sweet finish. It is beautifully floral and fragrant- truly a tea masterpiece.
Besides the intoxicating flavor of course, Tie Guan Yin is also popular because of its numerous healing properties. Some of the benefits of this tea include anti-aging, anti-cancer, the treatment and prevention of diabetes, and an aid in weight loss. When you combine a great tasting tea classic, pleasant fragrance and the health benefits, you can see why this tea is so sought after!
