tea defined - what is tie guan yin? | special guest chayo tea friends

A tea blog that is oo-longing for tea.

If there is one oolong tea you have probably tasted, it was most likely to be Tie Guan Yin otherwise known as Iron Goddess of Mercy. While it may not be harvested by monkeys, this tea is undoubtedly a popular one. Be it floral and fragrant or roasted and charred, Tie Guan Yin has something to offer everyone. Robert Coons of Chayo Tea Friends sits me down to talk in depth about this wonderful tea.
