About Green Sanctuary: Roast

This roasted Green Sanctuary oolong is better known in Taiwan as Iron Goddess Oolong or Tieguanyin

Green Sanctuary is the translated name of the monastery where this tea was made.

Tea making is a hobby of one of the monks, and we couldn’t be more pleased.
Due to its popularity, a true Taiwanese Iron Goddess varietal, or Tieguanyin, has become a rare find. We taste toasted barley and stewed peaches and smell charcoal and leather with hints of vanilla bean.
