Traditional Iron Buddha Supreme Oolong Tea


The Origin Story
Many Iron Buddha oolong teas produced today are lightly oxidised; reflecting the modern preference for this production style in mainland China. The traditional processing of Iron Buddha oolong tea however involves heavier roasting and more oxidation, but it is rare to find good quality examples from the orthodox region of Anxi. This taiwanese example has a thick and creamy, almost syrupy texture and a wonderful taste combining honeyed sweetness, baked fruit and chocolate flavours. A deeply satisfying and moreish tea. We were only able to secure five of the seven kilos produced this year.
Taiwan - Taipei

Taipei is a small, but quality focused tea region and home to stunning teahouses

This year’s tea is from just south of Taipei in Taiwan where the traditional processing and has been bought back to life. Mr Zhu Ma has used the best leaves he could find and stuck to traditional processing methods to produce an outstanding oolong tea.
