Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong
At Has Bean, we know coffee. But we also enjoy tea and in order to provide it we needed some expert help to deliver the quality you expect from us. We are really proud to be working with Waterloo Gardens Teahouse to offer some of the most amazing and delicious teas I have ever come across. Kas, the owner of Waterloo Gardens Teahouse, is the tea expert we look to for all our loose leaf teas offerings and we've been rewarded with some super special brews.
Tae Kuan Yin is known as Iron Goddess of Mercy and is the most famous oolong tea. Our special grade of this tea is hand-harvested from the soft stem Wu-Yi tea bush cultivar that is descended from the original tea bushes introduced to Taiwan from Fujian in the 19th Century. Made according to the traditional Tae Kuan Yin oxidation and bamboo coal baking techniques developed in China’s Fujian province.
A light golden-amber infusion with a smooth body and sweet finish. Its aroma is profoundly reminiscent of baked grain and dried apricot.
