This Chinese oolong is known as the Iron Goddess of Mercy (Tie Guan Yin). Crafted to an exact point at which the leaves reveal their hidden subtleties. It has rich floral aromas leading to a perfectly balanced mineral finish. The first infusion has a succulent sweetness with later infusions leading to green floral notes. Each time you infuse the leaves different subtleties are revealed.

Many customers use the calendar for orders they'd like to arrive in the future, and as close to, or on, a specific date. Please do select the target date using the calendar and make sure your paid shipping charge matches your choice. For example if you're ordering for a Saturday delivery in a fortnight, you'd pick the date on the calendar and pay for Saturday delivery in your cart.


If your item contains fresh products requiring ice packs for transit, we will only ship it if a suitable shipping option has been selected and paid for to ensure it arrives in a good state. For example we wouldn't ship a gift with cheese on a Friday for delivery on a Monday as standard.
