Fujian Green Oolong Tea is an authentic oolong tea, brewed with leaves from Guizhou, China. Grown in subtropical climate, ideal for oolong cultivation, this tea has a honey aroma and a warm toasted nut flavor. It is also called "Iron Goddess."
Fujian Green Oolong tea has its origins dating back to 18th Century. A tea plant (Fujian)was found in a cave behind the Guanyin temple.
Another story around Fujian Green Oolong tea is that a scholar discovered the tea plant by Guanyin rock. The scholar presented the tea to Emperor Qian Long who declared that it has the weight of iron and the appearance of Guan Yin.
Variety & Processing
Tie Guan Yin is the name of the preferred variety of tea plant used in most " Iron Goddess" teas. Although there are others which are used to make this type of tea (Ben Shan, Huang Dan and others).
Tie Guan Yin follows standard harvesting and processing for Oolongs (pluck, wither, cool, shake, oxidise, roll, dry, refine and roast). Having said that, there are a few different styles of "Iron Goddess".
Traditional Tie Guan Yin (Chuan Tong) is oxidised more and at room temperature, whereas the more modern light Tie Guan Yin (Qing Xiang) borrows the more Taiwanese approach of cold room withering and lower oxidation.
This is why modern Tie Guan Yin tends to have a more flowery and rich aroma compared with the thicker texture of traditional tea.
