Iron Goddess of the Four Seasons - Traditional Roast Si Ji Chun - 2.5 oz
This product is also part of our limited-edition Autumn Health Collection.
Thick, buttery and full bodied with floral, roasty, nutty flavors and woodsy aroma. The traditional roasting (Iron Goddess Method) brings out a rich depth in this exquisite tea that is less common for Four Seasons Oolong, while maintaining a bright, clean and delicate brew. MOA certified organic, Spring-Pluck 2021, and "Tie Guan Yin Style," this Four Seasons Oolong (Si Ji Chun) comes from mid-elevation Nantou, Taiwan. The tightly rolled brown leaves open slowly, yielded many steepings that transform from woodsy notes to more floral sweetness in later steepings. We suggest brewing between 195 and 205F. The caffeine is light.
"One of my absolute favorite teas! The complexity of flavors that come with the traditional roast are a delight whether I'm brewing this gong fu style or leaves in a bowl. I even bought some with the intention of aging it, though time will tell whether I can keep myself from drinking it long enough for it to age."- Jen Dennis
