Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin), which translates as "Iron Goddess", is a lovely oolong tea.  Oolong teas are semi-fermented and can range from nearly green to almost black. Ti Kuan Yin is on the greener end of the oolong spectrum. The infusion is pale golden, quite smooth with floral-like notes and a smooth rather nutty finish.  This delicious tea can be re-steeped multiple times. Oolong teas are believed to boost metabolism and you will find this tea frequently called "the slimming tea."  In fact, all tea helps boost metabolism.

Like most oolongs, Ti Kuan Yin is a tightly rolled tea, and will require steeping with boiling water to encourage the leaves to unfurl. We recommend starting with no more than 1 level teaspoon per 8 ounces of water, as the leaves are quite large when unfurled. Steep for approximately 3 minutes. Adjust to suit as you become better acquainted with this lovely tea.
