The Iron Goddess is also known as Tie Guan Yin in China. It is one of the top ten Chinese teas. This teas divided into two catergories: lightly oxidised and heavy oxidised. MY Teahouse offers the lightly oxidised Iron Goddess. The taste of this spring-harvested Iron Goddess is more delicate than the one harvested in Autumn.
