Tieguanyin Tea translated into English as Iron Goddess Tea. Originating in Anxi County in Fujian Province. The tea’s leaves are dark green and rolled into tight balls. The “Tie” in Tieguanyin is translated into English as “Iron” This is because as you drop the leaves into your teapot they ring like iron as they hit the pot. The tea has the aroma of orchids with no hint of grassiness and its flavor is long lasting. It is a wonderful tea and a great tea to begin with.
