Tie Guan Yin - Tie Zhang

Gande, Anxi, Fujian China
Since tea mechanisation, iron goddess have been rolled/bruised and shaped by motorised tumblers and kneaders. With this Iron Palm version however, we’re taking it back to ol' school hand-processing. Why? No other reason than Mr Zhang’s labour of love and passion for nostalgia. You can taste the love with each steaming pour - a unique sweet malt atop the usual tie guan yin florals, the combination is rare, delicate and lifting. Scooped up by the hands of the enlightened one and raised to the sky to taste the sweet heavenly vapours.
