Toasted barley, roasted peaches, subtle vanilla

Oolong tea · low oxidation · medium roast

Tea making is a hobby of one of the monks of where we source this oolong tea, and we couldn’t be more pleased. This roasted Green Sanctuary oolong is better known in Taiwan as Iron Goddess or Tieguanyin

Due to its popularity, a true Taiwanese Iron Goddess varietal has become a rare find. We taste toasted barley and stewed peaches and smell the aroma of charcoal and leather with hints of vanilla bean. 

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