Tie Luo Han - 2019 Zheng Yan Wuyi Oolong Loose Leaf Tea
Tie Luo Han, or
Tieluohan, is called Iron Arhat or Iron Monk in America. One of the Four Famous Oolongs. The small, family owned and run farm from which we sourced our tea is located in the Dahongpao Scenic Area, a national reserve that contains the original rock tea trees of Wuyi, China. The family has owned the farm for several generations. The tea is processed entirely by hand except for stem removal.
This Zheng Yan Tie Luo Han oolong tea was harvested in 2019. The leaves were twisted, dried and medium roasted over lychee charcoal. Lychee charcoal produces no smoke and adds no flavor. The roasting enhances the flavor and is a very time consuming and difficult process.
The flavor is very fruity with a good body. It is highly complex with many nuances to explore. The aftertaste lingers for several minutes.
Our 2019 Zheng Yan Tie Luo Han oolong rock tea will give strong, clear brews for at least 8 steeps, up to 15.
