Legend has it the goddess of mercy visited a poor farmer in a dream and told him of a treasure in a nearby cave. The gift was a tea shoot, which he was instructed to share. When you taste this oolong you will be grateful he was true to his word and share it with the world. Also known as Tie Kwan Yin or the Iron Goddess of Mercy.

Ingredients: Half-fermented Chinese Oolong tea.

An Afternoon Delight!

I bought some Oolong tea for the first time as a caffeine-free substitute for my tea addiction and was delighted with this tea! I agree with the review below, do not stew this tea, or it hides the smooth tones! I love it, the only issue is how quickly I go through a packet!

Best made not too strong

I am an oolong virgin, so if you're not then maybe you disagree :)
I originally tried it as a bag (a sample from Shibui). It didn't seem to colour terribly quickly so I left it in, like you might do with a herbal. It was bloody lovely - really refreshing and light. So I ordered some loose. I have a Shibui teapot so I used that. But I think I made it too strong. Or I just wasn't used to oolong and the taste was a bit challenging for me! Since then I've made it much weaker (a heaped teaspoon) and I love it like that.
