A lightly oxidized, tightly-rolled oolong, Jade Goddess exhibits floral notes of fragrant orchid. Its intense aromatics, vibrant color, and delicate flavor are what Jade oolongs are known for. It undergoes eighteen meticulous steps of processing in an effort to draw out every nuance this oolong has to offer, and the results are impressive.

  • 2 tsp per 8 oz of water, 195°F, 3-5 min

    When using a yixing teapot or a gaiwan, use twice as much tea and steep the same tea leaves 1-2 minutes multiple times until the flavor fades.

    • Gave the tea cultivar Ti Kuan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) its name.
    • One of the "Four Famous Teas" of Anxi.
    • Grown in the hills at an elevation of roughly 2500 ft.
    • The process for this more lightly oxidized Ti Kuan Yin originated in 1969. Less bruising of the leaves and shorter firing times produce a greener, more floral oolong.
    • In Buddhist mythology, the goddess Ti Kuan Yin appeared to a peasant who faithfully tended to a forgotten temple. She told him that when he left the temple the next day, he would find something that would change his life.
    • After completing his duties the next day, the peasant exited the temple and saw a tea bush that was not there before. Carefully, he removed the plant and planted it on a hillside near his home.
    • This tea uses the same tea cultivar as Amber Goddess, but oxidizes the tea leaves lightly, which brings out the floral notes in the tea leaves.
    • Anxi is a small county within Fujian, China, slightly inland from the coast, and directly across the water from Taiwan, which is home to many of the world's best lightly oxidized (or Jade) oolongs.
