type: oolong

origin: china

region: fujian uji

caffeine: decaf

Legend has it the ancient Goddess of Mercy appeared to a humble farmer guiding him to nurture and care for a single tea sprout that would bring his village prosperity. From the Fujian province, China, the dark emerald green leaves that are 50% oxidized are tightly wound and unfurl imparting a smooth body and sweet finish. Its aroma is reminiscent of toasted grain and dried figs.

      This is a BIG tea. It is delicious but can be oversteeped very easily. Dont drink on an empty stomach!

      This is a great tea, but definitely prepare for a real punch of flavor.

      This is a pretty tasty oolong, and to be fair, it probably has the best name out of any tea I've ever tried.
