Mucha Tie Guan Yin (roasted)

Iron Goddess of Mercy
Product code: CSTW-31

Planted in around 1875 in the Mucha region, this wulong is unique to the Taiwanese archipelago. M. Gao presents his marvellous version of the Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin).

The intensive cooking process that lasts several days gives it a unique roasty note. Its nose of coffee and caramel, mixed with candied fruit and apricot flavours, and its remarkable persistence in the mouth make it an exceptional tea.
