Product code: CSTW-56

Legendary rolled wulong from Fujian (China), Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) is one of the country’s best representatives.

Its sharp, sweet taste and its characteristic flowery aromas (lilacs and lilies) made it a favorite both East and West.

This particularly aromatic harvest comes from Mr. Zhang Guo Hua’s gardens, in the mountainous region of Anxi. Grown in altitude, his tea bursts with intensity.
