Oolong tea is semi fermented, its fermentation lays between green tea and black tea. It has more body than green tea, and less body than black tea. Tea leaves destined to become oolong tea are wilted in the direct sun and then shaken in tubular bamboo baskets to bruise the leaf edges. Iron Goddess is at first bitter, then sweet and finishes with notes of floral orchid.
Iron Goddess oolong tea is our earthy oolong tea. It starts with a bitter oolong taste, and finishes with sweet orchid notes.
Oolong teas are gorgeously complex, and offer huge value (and are really fun to say!). The same leaves are meant to steeped multiple times, revealing slightly different flavours with each steep.
Oolong teas are steeped via pour-over: The first steep is 1 minute long and poured out. The second steep is 1 – 3 minutes long and is first (of many) infusions you drink from the leaves.

“This is a classic oolong tea, perfect on its own or after a meal (with or without a dessert). The tea is light and refreshing, with beautiful floral notes that give me springtime vibes. I love this tea so much, and I would love to order it in a big bag next time.
On a side note, you can steep it more than once. I steeped it three times, and the beautiful flavors still held up. Buy this tea; you will not regret it!”
